7 Sign-up Patients can sign up themselves for Limited Access (messaging only—no access to privileged health information): Patients are able to sign up remotely for level I access by going to They can be anywhere—they do not have to be at Vanderbilt to sign up for this service  The signup program will ask them to enter information about themselves and will then match their information and identify their medical record number  Back to Contents

8 Increase Access Level Converting from limited to full access
Once patients have Limited Access, they are able to message but do not have access to personal information or the ability to pay bills Patients will need to show proper identification in the clinic to obtain Full Access Posters will be placed strategically throughout the clinics inviting them to sign up for limited access before they leave and to request full access Before they leave the staff are able to confirm their identity and then bump up their level of access to Full Access in StarPanel Back to Contents

9 Increase Access Level Back to Contents

10 Screensaver / KIOSK Sign-up
My HealthatVanderbilt will be advertised on clinical workstations in each of the exam rooms allowing patients to sign up while waiting without any staff having to log them on This is complete autopilot signup! Back to Contents

11 Who Can Message The computer looks at their past and future appointments and identifies the providers throughout VUMC that the patients have seen or are scheduled to see The patients will then immediately have access to message only those doctors with whom they have a relationship Since this has been in the pilot mode there have been very few clinics participating We are now in the process of rolling out to all of the Medical Center Back to Contents

12 They do not go directly to the doctor’s basket
Messaging It is very important that you understand how patient messaging works because it is a little different than regular messaging Patients are able to log on to My HealthatVanderbilt remotely and send a message to their provider’s office These messages always go to a designated message basket (secretary or nurse’s basket) , mimicking what would happen if they had called on the telephone, and should be handled in the same way They do not go directly to the doctor’s basket Back to Contents

13 Message From Patient Saved to chart To Doctor To Nurse To Secretary
Back to Contents

14 Initiating messages Patient messages should be handled as you would handle ANY other message  Be sure to save them when complete, just like you would any other message  Back to Contents

15 Initiating messages The only part of a message that the patient will see is when you intentionally hit the green button.  Then it ONLY sends what is currently in the text box, nothing prior to it  The provider can dialogue back and forth with the nurse about an issue and the patient is not able to see anything until it is finally typed into a message to the patient and sent with the green The button . Then, only the most recent message that you type into the text box goes to the patient Back to Contents

16 Initiating messages At any point when you open up a new message on a patient who has signed up for My Health at Vanderbilt you will be able to see the familiar green link on the right side of the message, indicating that this is a patient you can message, and allowing you to send a message to them Back to Contents

17 Messaging When you send a message to the patient, the message is now saved to the chart right away Messages in the same thread are grouped by date in the All view.  For example, if you send 4 messages to a patient using the same thread in one day, there will only be one entry in the All view Back to Contents

18 Messaging Though you may save a message to the chart, the patient can later add to the message and it will reappear in the designated message basket with the old text and whatever new the patient typed Please remember that every time the patient sends a message to us, even if they are responding to a question, the message goes to a designated message basket.  This prevents messages from being lost in a basket that is not being covered if, for instance, the physician is out of town. Back to Contents

19 Initiating messages to be sent in the future
Back to Contents

20 Initiating a future message
Back to Contents

21 Initiating a reminder Back to Contents
Future messages in the same thread can be seen when you open the past message from the All view.  For example, if there are 2 messages in the same thread, one sent last week, and one sent today, there will be 2 entries of that thread in the All view.  If you click on the last week message, you'll see a button that says "Click to see all messages in this thread".  Back to Contents

22 Future Messages Future messages in the same thread can be seen when you open the past message from the All view For example, if there are 2 messages in the same thread, one sent last week, and one sent today, there will be 2 entries of that thread in the All view If you click on the last week message, you'll see a button that says "Click to see all messages in this thread".  Back to Contents

23 Patient Notification Every time you send a message to the patient through their My HealthatVanderbilt account, an will be sent to their regular account, notifying them that they have a message from their provider and allowing them to click on a link that takes them to My HealthatVanderbilt home page  Back to Contents

24 No email address listed
You will receive a message notifying you if the patient does not have an address listed Back to Contents

25 Bounce Back Feature In the event that the patient does not check their or if they have not opened the message in five (5) days, the message will “bounce back” to you notifying you of this Then you can mail them or call them as you normally would have done before My HealthatVanderbilt Back to Contents

26 Sending a Patient Letter
Yes, there is also the ability for providers who use Patient Letter to directly send these letters to patients by the web interface with a click of the button instead of mailing. This should reduce phone calls and typing. It is important to understand how the system works, as you will increasingly begin receiving patient messages into the PSR or nurse baskets, and patients will be signing up for this service and may ask you questions.

28 Test Results Available For Patient View
