Great News for our Patient Portal Users!
If your family doctor is with Appletree (i.e., if you are rostered to a family doctor at Appletree), you can now view most test results!
Test results that have been filed by your family doctor (i.e., that he or she has not asked you to return to see him/her to review) can now be viewed, securely on your patient portal. These results are:
• Most lab work (e.g., blood work)
• Most diagnostic imaging (e.g., X-ray report, ultrasound)
• CT, MRI
• Most cardiodiagnostics, such as ECG/EKG, echocardiograms and stress tests
• Pulmonary Function Tests and Audiograms
Also, if your family doctor is with Appletree, you will now be able to enter the following vitals from home, or anywhere in the world with an internet connection:
• Height and Weight
• Blood Pressure
• Blood Sugar
This is a great way to track your levels. Your doctor will be able to view these at each visit.
If you do not yet have your Patient Portal, you can request one at your next visit to any Appletree clinic.
