MyLVHN Has a New Look for a Healthier You – and is Your Path to the COVID-19 Vaccine

BY HANNAH ROPP 

MyLVHN*, Lehigh Valley Health Network’s secure patient portal, empowers you to take control of your health – and, thanks to the new design, it’s easier than ever to use. The new experience streamlines your options to make it easier to find what you’re looking for and direct you to what’s most important regarding your health.

MyLVHN is your path to vaccination

MyLVHN is also the quickest and easiest way to schedule your COVID-19 vaccine when supply is available. Everyone with an account is preregistered for the vaccine and will receive a notification from MyLVHN when you can schedule your appointment. (For more information about COVID-19 vaccines, who we are currently vaccinating and answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs), visit LVHN.org/vaccines.)

NEW desktop and mobile features

When you log in to your MyLVHN account from a desktop or a mobile device, you will notice right away some features to improve your experience.

“Visits,” “Medications,” “Messages” and “Test Results” all are readily available for quick access. All other features are accessible through “Your Menu.”

Easy to navigate menu

The new unified menu gives you access to all available activities, and you can use the search bar to look up a specific activity or synonyms, as well as personalize your account (including activating Touch ID and setting communication preferences) from options under "Account Settings."

Schedule and see your appointments

Scheduling an appointment with your provider has never been easier. Simply select "Schedule an appointment" and set the date and time with a provider you have seen before. You also can schedule many types of diagnostic tests and rehabilitation services. Any test or other service your provider has ordered that can be scheduled in MyLVHN will appear in "Schedule an appointment." Simply select the test or service that was ordered and press "Schedule Now."

Once you've scheduled appointments, they will show up in your appointment feed. Here, you can view past visit summaries or see your upcoming appointments at a glance.

Timely updates in your health feed

You’ll also notice a health feed, which shows all of your actionable health updates. The options under the health feed include new messages, upcoming appointments, new test-result messages, outstanding balances, share everywhere and health maintenance.

Personalize your account

MyLVHN also will allow you to personalize your account by adding photos and color schemes.

When you log in to MyLVHN, take a few minutes to explore all of the great features of the redesigned MyLVHN. And if it’s time for a checkup, take a minute to make your appointment right from your account.
