KHIN and KDHE collaborate to deliver Kansas immunization records through MyKSHealth eRecord online personal health record
TOPEKA, Kan., February 4, 2016 — Kansas Health Information Network (KHIN), a leader in health information exchange, and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) announce a new online feature which allows Kansans to have secure access to state-certified immunization records through their MyKSHealth eRecord personal health record.
“As the mother of four boys it can be challenging to keep track of immunization records critical for school enrollment or to ensure their immunizations are current," explained Dr. Laura McCrary, Executive Director of KHIN. "As a result of this KHIN/KDHE collaboration, Kansans can access and print a certified copy of their immunization records any time through their MyKSHealth eRecords online personal health record.”
KHIN supports MyKSHealth eRecords by electronically transmitting medical records available in the health information exchange to individuals who have an established MyKSHealth eRecords account. Kansans now have secure, convenient access to an even more complete picture of their health due to this unique immunization record integration with KDHE.
In addition to the KDHE state certified immunization feature available in MyKSHealth eRecords, other valuable components of MyKSHealth eRecords include online medical record access, secure messaging, health information and education, and new health information alerts. To set up your MyKSHealth eRecord patient portal, call 844-4MYHLTH (844-469-4584), or to gain access to these benefits as well as your immunization records, contact the KDHE at 877-296-0464.
