‘Expert Advice’: Your personal health information
Upstate University Hospital chief medical information officer Neal Seidberg, MD, talks about a new era of technology where people are using wearable devices such as Fitbit™ to track daily activities and calories burned. Seidberg says this type of personal information, if desired, may some day be shared directly with your healthcare provider’s electronic medical records.
Upstate’s electronic medical records system, called MyChart, is a secure, password protected account accessible exclusively to the patient, that allows them to securely access test results, request prescripton renewals, view recent clinic visits and request appointments.
