Benefits of information sharing

Great Lakes Health Connect makes your health information available to your health care providers to benefit you in the following ways:

• In case of a medical emergency, even if you are unconscious.

• To review your test results, lab reports and radiology reports.

• To coordinate your care when you see specialists or change doctors.

• To help your health care providers follow your care plans and avoid duplicating any treatments or tests. This saves you time and out-of-pocket expenses.

GLHC complies with all state and federal regulations regarding the privacy and security of health information.

Patients can elect not to participate in GLHC, which means none of their health care providers will be able to access their health information electronically.
