myhealth@UHB allows patients to remotely access some of their clinical information held by University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB), including letters, appointments and laboratory results.
Developed by UHB’s in-house Technical Development and Informatics Team, the myhealth@UHB portal is currently used by 40 specialties across UHB with the ambition to extend this to all UHB patients.
Patients can also upload information to myhealth@UHB, allowing clinical staff to instantly see updates and respond where necessary. The facility to store and share files relating to their health as well as add appointments from other hospitals helps create a more complete picture of their healthcare.
The initial myhealth@UHB trial was kindly funded by the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB) Charity.
