Rules of the Road

As your health care provider, the Medical Center Clinic (MCC) feels strongly that effective and timely two way communication is critical to quality health care.

Note that access to MyMCCHealth is an additional resource for communications with your health care provider. Use of MyMCCHealth does not limit your options to contact your provider's office by phone or other means.

By using MyMCCHealth, you will now be able to view most areas of your medical record including lab and radiology test results. You will have access to these results as they are received into the medical record. In some cases, you may even have access to the results before they have been reviewed by the provider.

MyMCCHealth Responsibility

Provider Responsibility
  • To review your results and communicate their meaning in a clear and timely manner.

Patient Responsibility

  • To use MyMCCHealth only for its intended use.
  • To understand that time delays may occur between when your electronic medical record displays Lab, or other test, results and when your physician or physician's staff has an opportunity to communicate those results to you. Please allow your physician's office 3 business days from the date results are received to contact you and discuss the results
  • To not use MyMCCHealth for urgent or emergency situations. In the event of an emergency, you should call emergency medical services or 911, or go directly to the emergency room.
  • To understand that it may take up to 3 business days to receive a response to an email message. If you do NOT receive a response within 3 business days, you should contact your physician's office during normal business hours.

Rationale

  • The medical record has established ranges of expected test results programmed into its logic based on nationally approved, evidence-based research.
  • Results outside of the programmed ranges may be described in your medical record with terminology such as "ABNORMAL" or the result may appear in BOLD RED TEXT. These notations should not be taken as literal interpretations of your health. These alerts are used simply as a way to notify the physician of lab results that may need further testing or evaluation and you should wait for communication from your physician for lab result interpretation.
  • To not use MyMCCHealth for urgent or emergency situations. In the event of an emergency, you should call emergency medical services or 911, or go directly to the emergency room.
  • Please allow your health care provider time to review your results and to communicate with you as previously agreed. These communications may take place via phone call, letter, through MyMCCHealth or at your next scheduled appointment.
Unless urgent, the office staff will contact you regarding abnormal or questionable results within approximately 3 business days.
  • The results of most labs and basic imaging studies are received back within days of the test but can potentially take longer. This timing is necessary for adequate processing of the results. Also, please be aware that some tests can even take weeks before they are transmitted. Furthermore, not all results from a single day's tests are received back at the same time. Please be assured we are committed to get your results as quickly as possible.
