  • Changes Within Partners Patient Gateway
    • Why are you making changes to Partners Patient Gateway?
      • Your primary or specialty care practice has joined an exciting effort across Partners HealthCare to create a single, integrated electronic health record system to share your health information among authorized caregivers at all of our sites.
      • We are building this system now. We will be bringing additional Partners hospitals and affiliated physician practices live on the new system every few months through 2017. Our goals are to improve communication and coordination and provide you with higher-quality care, greater convenience and a better overall experience.
      • You will begin experiencing the benefits of the new, integrated electronic medical record system beginning as each partners-affiliated institution and practice begins using the new system.
      • The enhancements will make it even easier to interact with your doctor’s office. As we roll out this new system across Partners-affiliated hospitals and practices, we are looking ahead with the goal of offering new features to help you:
        • Update your own medications, allergies and health problems.
        • Change your address or other personal information.
        • Use health questionnaires to better inform your care providers.
        • Attach an image to share visible symptoms when appropriate.
        • See charts of your test results over time.
        • Share a daily log of your own care with your practice.
    • Why is some of my health information in two different places within Patient Gateway? Why do I see multiple tabs for some parts of my health record (such as Medications and Mail)?
      • Your doctors are transitioning to a new computer system. During this transition, some doctors will be using one system, while other doctors are on another system.

        For some modules, Partners Patient Gateway will display information from both systems within two distinct sections or “tabs” (e.g. Medications List 1, Medications List 2). If you don’t find what you are looking for in the primary tab, select the alternate tab to see additional information.

        If all of your doctors have transitioned to the new computer system, Partners Patient Gateway will continue to display information using the two tab format so you may reference historical data from the prior system.

  • Updating my Partners Patient Gateway Account
    • I tried logging in to Partners Patient Gateway and have been prompted to create account questions and change my username. Why is this changing?
      • Partners Patient Gateway has implemented an Account Management system from RSA Security, LLC to maintain the security and confidentiality of your account.

        As a user of Partners Patient Gateway, you will have the following features:

        • Seamless account management and password recovery across devices, including mobile devices. For example, we can send you a text message to help you access your account if you forget your password.
        • Additional security questions to help you manage your account. If you forget your password, you will be prompted to answer multiple questions to recover your password. Also, if you log in from an unfamiliar computer, you may be prompted to answer security questions before you log in to the application. For instance, if you are traveling internationally and attempt to log in from a computer in another country, you may be prompted to answer your security challenge questions.
        Once you have updated your account, your email address will be your new Username for Partners Patient Gateway
