How can clinicians manage results released through the Patient Portal?

Question: Can prescribers attach comments to results that may help patients appreciate the personal significance of information released through MyAHS Connect?

Context: Most laboratory test results, diagnostic imaging reports and health intervention reports are released to MyAHS Connect, the Connect Care patient portal. Clinicians can use Hyperspace to detect whether a patient has MyAHS Connect enabled, is an active user, or has viewed specific results. It is also possible to attach comments to one or more test results or to manually withhold some results.

Answer: Connect Care offers some simple tools for recognizing when patients are active users of its patient portal and view results or reports. It is possible for physicians to comment on one or more results and to select specific results to withhold until further discussion has occurred.
