COMING SOON: New Patient Portal
STHL Patient Portal: Your Personal Healthcare Record
Southern Tier HealthLink (STHL) is dedicated to Connecting the Dots among all of the people, places and equipment that deliver healthcare services. We believe that you- the patient- should be at the center of your healthcare network with your doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals linked to all of the medical information they need to give you the best, most informed care possible.
An important feature of the STHL Health Information Exchange (HIE) is the ability for patients to access their electronic records that are stored in the HIE. With the STHL Patient Portal, you'll have convenient online access to your own healthcare information.
In conjunction with our mission to "Connect the Dots" and our new participation in the Statewide Health Information Network of New York (SHIN-NY), STHL is upgrading the Patient Portal to include more information and additional features. This new and improved portal is expected to be available by Spring of 2015.
