Health Portal Offers New Feature to Make Managing Your Health Easier and More Convenient
MyUnityPoint patient portal is an extension of the doctor’s office for established patients at UnityPoint Clinic. A variety of tools offered on the portal make managing one’s health an easier and more personal experience. The newest feature of the portal is the ability to get on a wait list. The waiting list feature allows you to schedule an appointment with your provider but receive a notification if an earlier appointment becomes available. When you get on the wait list for an appointment in MyUnityPoint, you'll be notified via text or email as soon as an earlier appointment becomes available. Upon receiving the notification, you can log in to the MyUnityPoint website or mobile app and claim the offer if it is still available or decline the offer to keep your appointment scheduled as is. Act fast because appointments are claimed on a first come, first serve basis and will expire after a period of time.
In addition to making it easier to see your doctor through online scheduling and the wait list, other features of the MyUnityPoint patient portal include ways that you can connect directly with your doctor outside of an office visit. Have a question about a symptom or a prescription – simply send a secure message and your provider will follow up through the portal. Or maybe a visit to the doctor resulted in a test such as lab work or x-ray. You can see your results immediately when available in the portal so you’ve had a chance to review your results when your doctor follows up with you. Also, there’s a lot that happens at the doctor’s office. Take five minutes after each appointment to review your health summaries. The summary is full of instructions, tips, and suggestions to keep you at your best.
Read below what a few MyUnityPoint users have to say about the portal:
“As a busy mom, the MyUnityPoint portal is a valuable tool to make managing the health care of myself and family easier and more convenient.”
“MyUnityPoint is easy and convenient!”
“I love the any time, any where access the portal allows. Most of the time, I remember to schedule doctor appointments for my children and I once I am in bed. It's so handy to get out my phone, check availability and schedule an appointment right then and there. Also, with small children, health issues come up that I am not always certain require a visit to the doctor. I can send a message, explain the situation and hear from our doctor what the next steps are in helping my children get better. MyUnityPoint is so easy and convenient to use!”
