MyLGHealth has revolutionized the way Lancaster General Health interacts with its patients, and also, how patients engage in managing their health. MyLGHealth offers patients a convenient, secure way to access their personal health information, view test results, request prescription refills and appointments, and connect with their doctors' offices using their computers or smart phones.
Recently, LG Health President & CEO Thomas Beeman, PhD, presented the team from Information Services, Lancaster General Health Physicians and Marketing responsible for implementing MyLGHealth with the 2013 President’s Award.
Over the past 20 months, through the group’s collaborative efforts, the number of patients using this online tool increased from 5,332 to nearly 50,000.
Today, approximately 20 percent of registered users log into the portal each week to access their medical record or communicate with their provider, supporting LG Health's transformative strategy of engaging, educating and empowering our patients and making them more accountable for their healthcare.
