Group Health patients can now read their own pathology reports online if they have registered for advanced services on MyGroupHealth for Members. These reports, covering clinical results of biopsies and other tissue samples, will be released to MyGroupHealth one week after the result is posted for clinicians in Epic, Group Health’s electronic medical record system. The delay will allow enough time for the provider to contact the patient to discuss the results beforehand. In a recent focus group, Group Health patients said they preferred automatic online access to their own pathology reports.
