Renown Health gives patients the tools they need to manage their health care anywhere, any time.
Steve Norkus is a man on the move. He travels more than 10 days per month in cities across the United States for his job as relationship manager at Professional Pavement Products.
His busy schedule leaves little time to contact his doctor’s office during normal office hours. As a result, he’s become huge fan of MyChart and relies heavily on this specialized service.
MyChart is a secure online program offered by Renown Health that enables Steve to easily manage his healthcare by accessing lab results, exchanging messages with his doctor, or requesting prescriptions refills, for example, when it’s convenient for him.
“My favorite feature is almost immediate access to lab test results, which I often receive the next day,” Norkus says. “When I lived in Florida, I waited up to two weeks at times to get my test results back.”
Renown providers have up to a minimum of four business days to review and release lab test results to patients. After four business days, most results are released into the patient’s MyChart account automatically.
Norkus appreciates the convenience of accessing his medical history, medications and immunizations — on the road or at home, day or night.
Requesting a referral to a specialist is another element of MyChart program he finds handy.
“I recently had to go to a foot specialist and received a message from Henrik Slots, my doctor, that the referral had been submitted,” Norkus says. “He typically responds to my messages within 24 hours.”
“I’ve never had the communication and information about my current and past heath information at my fingertips before. MyChart is amazing and in my ‘favorites’ list,” he says.
