West County Dermatology is committed to your health. As part of this commitment, we want you to have 24/7 access to your confidential health information in our secure patient portal. This portal access is secure and meets all compliance requirements outlined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996. As of January 25, 2017 our patient portal has changed. You’ll need to create a new account the first time you enter, even if you previously had one in our old portal. The new secure patient portal will provide you with access to the following information:
- myInfo – update your demographics
- myVisits – enter your medical history in forms or access a clinical summary from a previous visit
- myMessages – send a secure message to the office
- myAccount – link other family member accounts together or link with another medical office
