Need Anytime Access to Your Medical Record? UPMC Has an App for That

PITTSBURGH, June 15, 2011 – UPMC’s patients now have access to key parts of their medical records through their iPhones and iPads. The mobile HealthTrak application allows patients to see test results, review medical histories and medications, communicate securely with their doctors and view upcoming appointments.

“We know that our patients need and want secure access to their medical records, even when they are on the go. With this mobile version of UPMC’s HealthTrak, already used by more than 62,000 patients, we can offer them a convenient and free way to manage their care,” said G. Daniel Martich, M.D., chief medical information officer at UPMC.

Before using the mobile app, patients must first create a HealthTrak account online at UPMCHealthTrak.com, or by requesting an access code from their physicians. This Web-based portal provides patients with access to a wealth of functions for managing their health, many of which are included in the mobile version. After creating an account, users can then download MyChart from Epic at no charge from the iTunes App Store and select UPMC HealthTrak as the health care provider.  

UPMC has invested for more than a decade in electronic medical records to improve care for patients. Regularly cited as one of the “most wired” hospitals in America, UPMC last year ranked fifth in the InformationWeek500 among all companies for its innovative use of technology.
