How to Request Your Personal Health Record (PHR)
A new Personal Health Record (PHR) must be requested every time you want to see any available updates to your health record. Please make your request at least 5 days after any test(s) were performed.
Login to your Patient Portal account.
From the MY CHART tab, select Request Health Record
The Request Personal Health Record form will display.
If you are enrolled in a Non-Core practice, select the Practice where the request is to be sent
If you are managing other people’s accounts, select the Patient on whose behalf you are making the request.
Keep the Chart Date as All
Check your Inbox from a desktop computer
When the health record is sent to you (within 8 hours), it shows up as a new item in your Inbox. The document is formatted as a Continuity of Care Document (CCDA) which is a healthcare industry standard. The CCDA is the best online source for your clinical information. Due to a NextGen system defect, some information displayed in My Chart may be incomplete.
Any available updates to your Personal Health Record, such as most lab results, will appear once a new Personal Health Record request is processed. This could take overnight to process from the time of your request.
X-rays, Ultrasounds. MRIs, Cat Scans
Results that display for X-rays, Ultrasounds. MRIs, Cat Scans, etc. performed at Exeter Hospital (and their satellite locations) are limited and best viewed through the Exeter Hospital Patient Portal or by asking your physician’s office for a copy of the report. X-rays performed at the Center for Orthopedics & Movement are not visible on the patient portal.
Advance Directive information on the portal is limited and does not constitute a legal document or any assurance that the information is still accurate. Please verify the information with the holder of the legal document before using it for clinical purposes.
If you have a clinical question about any of the information in your PHR (CCDA), please send a Patient Portal message to your doctor’s office.
The Request Health Record link on a Mobile device can be located elsewhere, such as the left navigation column as seen in this iPhone screen shot. However, it is recommended that you view your PHR using a desktop device at this time.
