By shifting these interactions from the phones to secure email, communications are no longer limited to just office hours. This enables patients to securely communicate with their providers for these services: appointment requests, prescription refill requests, online lab results, billing questions, referral requests, messages to doctor’s office, and visit summaries.

Prescription Refill Requests Powered by RelayHealth Lab and Radiology Results Important Information about Patient Privacy As with any online service, privacy is a concern. You should protect your health information password and emails just like you would for a bank account. Federal and state laws regarding patient privacy require certain information to be protected at various ages, including patients under the age of 18. To comply with these regulations, Healthyupstate.org will automatically block access to accounts for all minors on their 13th birthday. A new email address and new password are required to reenroll in online access for patients who turn 13. While this may be a sensitive topic for some families, we encourage parents, children, physicians and other providers to all take part in the discussion to ensure P A T I E N T P O R T A L health information is used appropriately and responsibly. Connecting is Easy. Visit healthyupstate.org *Not all participating providers utilize all healthyupstate.org features.
