Epic Now Live at LVPG–Pocono Practices and Other Sites
Starting Saturday, Oct. 28, select Lehigh Valley Physician Group (LVPG)–Pocono practices and Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH)–Pocono outpatient services, along with the LVH–Pocono Access Center, went live with the Epic electronic medical record (EMR) system.
Who is live with Epic in the Poconos?
- 48 LVPG–Pocono practices
- 5 ExpressCARE locations
- 1 Access Center
- 1 Management Services Organization (MSO)
Integrated EMR=Patient benefits
With Epic live at most outpatient locations in the Poconos, patients served by those practices are now part of LVHN’s integrated electronic medical record system. What this means to you: If you require care at another LVHN practice or facility that already has Epic in place, your previous care information will be available for a physician to review and provide a clear view of your care and potential care gaps.
MyLVHN for Pocono patients
The most visible part of this transformation is the access you will now have to your own personal medical information through MyLVHN, the patient portal account. Your health information will become available after you and your health care provider review information that transitioned from the previous medical record into Epic.
Once you have access to MyLVHN, you will be able to:
- View test results
- Pay medical bills (incurred Oct. 28 and later)
- Send and receive non-urgent messages with their provider
- Review medication lists
- Schedule appointments, including screening mammograms for women age 40 and older
- Have a video visit with an LVHN provider
You will have an opportunity to activate your MyLVHN account when you receive an activation code at an appointment with your LVPG doctor. For more information, visit MyLVHN.org.
During this transition
We thank patients for their patience during this transition to Epic. Extra time is needed to confirm information that now appears in your electronic medical record to ensure it is complete and accurate. Thank you as we work to make your health care journey and your health information more accessible to you through our new EMR system.
