There is currently no link between PocketHealth and MyChart.

PocketHealth is a secure, online storage hub for medical imaging records. When you visit an imaging centre linked to PocketHealth, such as NHH’s Diagnostic Imaging department, you can have access to a permanent, digital copy of your medical imaging record that can be shared with any healthcare professional. To enroll, patients can visit www.pocket.health/NHH. Once enrolled, patients can view their available medical imaging history from NHH, sharing imaging instantly with any physician, or burn their own CD/USB from home. There is a fee at the time of enrolment which includes permanent access to all previous imaging and radiologist reports as well as any new exams administered over the following two weeks. Patients can update their accounts with new NHH records any time for an additional fee.

MyChart is secured through the same encryption technologies used by the major banks for online banking.

If you lose or forget your password, you can reset it by clicking the “forgot password” link on the MyChart login page.

Your doctor or nurse will discuss your test results with you at your next appointment.

If you see someone else’s personal health information when you log in to MyChart, please contact the Privacy Office of the Northumberland Hills Hospital at 905-372-6811, ext 4827 or by email.
