Susquehanna Health now offers its patients MyKeyCare, a secure online tool to gather, store and manage health information from a tablet, smartphone or computer.
Through MyKeyCare patients can view results of common diagnostic and lab tests, emergency room visits and reports from surgical procedures performed in a Susquehanna Health operating room.
A MyKeyCare record may contain a patient’s primary care doctor’s name and phone number, allergies, medications and ongoing health conditions, such as diabetes.
Information in MyKeyCare is password-protected and viewable only by the patient or by someone the patient designates.
“We are pleased to provide our patients with quick and easy electronic access to their medical information,” said Timothy Schoener, Vice President of Information Technology and Chief Information Officer at Susquehanna Health. “This patient tool will assist Susquehanna Health in improving the health of those we serve.”
With patient consent, healthcare professionals at more than 50 participating Pennsylvania healthcare providers will be able to access a patient’s health record if they are caring for that patient.
Patients can also upload health information from any doctor or healthcare professional who has cared for them or from any hospital or clinic where the patient has received care.
MyKeyCare is supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services with the goal of improving communication between doctors, hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare professionals.

MyKeyCare is powered by the Keystone Health Information Exchange and is funded by the Keystone Beacon Community, a pilot program supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services with the goal of improving communication between individuals and doctors, hospitals and other healthcare professionals.
