Kaiser Permanente Introduces My Health Manager Personal Health Record

Kaiser Permanente announced Tuesday the unveiling of My Health Manager, which is Kaiser Permanente's personal health record.

Since launching PHR features on Kaiser Permanente's public website in 2005, more than 1.6 million members have signed up to use those features. My health manager now gives Kaiser Permanente members a simplified way of accessing those PHR tools in one place.

My Health Manager provides critical time-saving features, including online appointment scheduling and prescription refills. In addition, users have 24/7 online access to lab test results, eligibility and benefits information, and even their children's immunization records. With secure e-mail messaging, members can also communicate with their doctors at anytime, from any internet connection. More than 275,000 secure e-mail messages are sent each month to Kaiser Permanente doctors and clinicians, demonstrating growing consumer interest in e-visits.

My Health Manager is a free service available to all Kaiser Permanente members. Members can visit to sign-up and to activate and access their personal health records.
