The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio Launches Online Patient Portal
August 11, 2015
The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio launched its patient portal, an online tool that gives parents access to their child’s health records online, through the website www.YourCHRISTUS.org. YourCHRISTUS is in addition to the outpatient portal which many parents have embraced and engaged for several years now.
YourCHRISTUS is an important step toward improving patients’ health care experiences and reflects CHRISTUS Health’s commitment to advancing technology and providing parents with enhanced access to their child’s personal health information.
Parents can begin to use the secure, web-based tool, by registering for a secure patient portal account which begins during the Hospital admission process. Parents must have access to a computer and the Internet to use the Your CHRISTUS patient portal.
During Hospital registration, parents will be asked to provide an email address. The parent will then receive an email message containing a Personal Identification Number (PIN) that is specific to their child’s account along with further instructions to log on to YourCHRISTUS.
Parents will be able to:
- Access health records 24/7
- Access test results – lab results, documented Hospital reports
- Download health records; share results with primary care physicians
- Use the portal as a personal health tracker – record weight, immunizations, and more
- Find a physician
- Pay bills online
“We understand parents need dependable health information at all hours, and we are pleased to offer the technology and accessibility that makes health care easier for our parents – anytime, anywhere,” said Elias Neujahr, president of the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio. “At the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio, we work around the clock to meet our patients’ health care needs, and the online patient portal is part of our commitment to provide excellent service to the families we are privileged to serve.”
The YourCHRISTUS patient portal, for patients 18 and over, was launched last summer at the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio’s sister facilities throughout the region. For more information about the YourCHRISTUS patient portal or Children’s Hospital of San Antonio, please visit www.chofsa.org.
