Patient Information for WISHIN

This program:

  • Allows your doctors to better coordinate your care: Different doctors will have more secure, near instant access to your health information. This includes health facilities you may visit near your home, as well as any you may visit while traveling elsewhere in the U.S.
  • Helps you get more informed care: With less time wasted tracking down your test results and other health information, your health care providers can spend more time focused on your care.
  • Supports you in case of emergency: There may be a time when you don’t have the ability to gather or share your health information. Medical staff could immediately access your allergies, medications and health problems, helping them care for you without delay.
  • Reduces paperwork and hassle: Save time and avoid the inconvenience of filling out the same health history forms over and over when you see new doctors. Your latest health information will be right at their fingertips.
