Under the 21st Century Cures Act, we are required by law to provide you access to specific medical records and results within 24 hours of them being finalized. In order to comply with the regulations and support the principle that the medical record belongs to the patient, NWMS will be making changes to automatically release clinical notes and results to the patient portal without delay.
You will have access to:
- Consultation Notes
- Procedure Notes
- Progress Notes
- Radiology Results
- Laboratory Results
- Pathology Results
This means you could receive your results prior to receiving communication from our team. However, we look at every result. We will contact you with any results that may be abnormal for you and of concern.
Please be aware that it is common for providers to use medical terminology that may be unfamiliar to patients and if you have question, please speak with your provider at your next office visit.
How to access your records:
Our online patient portal, CareSpace is a secure, online patient portal that provides you with access to your health information and care team.
Ask us how to sign up at your next visit or call us at (253)428-8700
