Garnet Health Doctors (formerly Orange Regional Medical Group and Catskill Regional Medical Group) is pleased to announce it has launched a new feature within its electronic health records platform called Visit Notes. Garnet Health Doctors uses MyChart, a secure electronic health records portal, which offers patients the ability to communicate with their doctor, access test results, request prescription refills, and make appointments and more, any time of day. The newest feature, Visit Notes, allows patients to easily access and review their doctors’ comments and notes from their visits.

“Visit Notes allow a patient or a family member to recall doctor visits in detail,” said Dr. Izabela Nowosielski, Chief Medical Officer, Garnet Health Doctors. “If you or someone you love is a patient of Garnet Health Doctors and has a MyChart account, you can see your providers’ Visit Notes (also known as Open Notes) from all recent visits.”

Visit Notes are written by doctors, nurses and other health professionals to provide information about visits and to describe the interactions with patients. The notes are part of the medical record and help patients, caretakers, doctors, nurses, and other providers revisit important notes describing patients’ office visits which provide more detail about their medical history. The more information accessible in an electronic health record, the more informed patients and providers are when future care is needed.

Garnet Health Doctors’ MyChart accounts are also accessible from the MyChart app which can be downloaded on iPhones or via Google Play.

How to access Visit Notes in MyChart

Once logged into your MyChart account, navigate to “Visits,” then scroll down to “Appointments and Visits” and click “View notes” after the date of the appointment you want to review.
