What is a patient portal?
A patient portal is a secure online website that gives you convenient, 24-hour access to your personal health information and medical records—called an Electronic Health Record or EHR—from anywhere through an Internet connection.

Why is using a patient portal important?
Accessing your personal medical records through a patient portal can help you be more actively involved in your own health care. Accessing your family members’ health information, with permission, can help you take care of them more easily. Also, patient portals offer self-service options that can eliminate phone tag with your doctor; sometimes even saving a trip to the doctor’s office.

What can I do with my patient portal?
As of July 1, 2014, you can see the summary of your care if you were an inpatient at CVPH. If your primary care doctor sends information to Hixny, you will be able to see a summary of your visits to the doctor. This type of information might include any medical issues, medications, allergies and hospital discharge instructions.  In the future, as state law allows, you may be able to:

  • View laboratory results and radiology reports
  • Exchange secure e-mail with your health care team
  • Request prescription refills
  • Schedule non-urgent appointments


How do I get access to a patient portal?
CVPH will enroll you during your stay at the hospital and provide you with the information you need to log on. When you get home you may visit Patient.Hixny.com, log into the portal and access your health information. If you have an email address, we recommend you update your account using your own email address.

How long do I have access to the portal after discharge?
Once we enroll you, the activation code will be good for 30 days. After 30 days, the code is no longer valid and we would need to re-enroll you. However, your information will not be in the portal until 2 days after discharge. This can be done in person at our Patient Registration Department, either over the phone or in person:

Monday—Friday from 8:00 am- 4:30 pm

Phone: (518) 562-CARE (2273)
