Top 5 Reasons You Need MyLVHN

Having “at your fingertips access” to your personal health information and your health care team isn’t just a luxury for the rich and famous. MyLVHN is the fastest growing patient portal  in the region, offered by Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN). You can quickly log into your account and access unsurpassed care at LVHN.

MyLVHN is the patient-facing side of the Epic electronic medical record (EMR) system that LVHN transitioned to a few years ago in the Lehigh Valley and most recently, at Lehigh Valley Physician Group–Pocono. With Epic, each patient has one electronic medical record. That translates into reduced duplication of services and helps identify any gaps in patient care. It also provides you with a complete MyLVHN experience.

Top 5 Reasons You Need MyLVHN

MyLVHN offers a wealth of benefits, but five stand out:

  1. View test results – This is a best-loved feature of MyLVHN. You can see and review your results whenever you like.

  2. Review your personal health information – Never again do you have to wonder when you got your last tetanus shot. It’s right in your MyLVHN account.

  3. Send and receive non-urgent messages with your provider – Wait on-hold no more! Send a secure question or message to your health care provider and you will receive a message back.

  4. Schedule appointments, including screening mammograms for women age 40 and older – Use MyLVHN to scroll through your appointment choices and schedule the one that best meets your needs.

  5. Have a Video Visit with an LVHN provider – Sometimes you feel too “blah” to go to the office. People age 18 and older can use MyLVHN to schedule a Video Visit appointment time (24/7, 365 days a year), and then use your video-enabled smartphone or smart device (along with the MyLVHN app – more on that below) to talk to the doctor about what ails you.

More top reasons to use MyLVHN

Beyond the top 5, use your MyLVHN account to review medications your physician may have prescribed, request refills, pay medical bills, and if you are the primary caregiver for a child or an adult, you may request proxy access to help manage their care through their own MyLVHN account.

Oh yes, we’ve got that app

Like you, we use our mobile devices for nearly everything. That’s why LVHN produced an exclusive MyLVHN app to make your mobile experience easy and optimized.
