See test results, clinical notes in your MHS GENESIS Patient Portal

By TRICARE Communications

If you’ve recently had a blood draw or X-ray, you’re likely interested in seeing the results once they’re available. Or perhaps you want to review what you discussed with your health care team at your last appointment.

If you visited a military hospital or clinic for your recent test or appointment, you can access this information in the MHS GENESIS Patient Portal.

“The MHS GENESIS Patient Portal makes it easy to view your test results and clinical notes as soon as they’re ready,” said U.S. Air Force Col. Tara Conner, Defense Health Agency chief health informatics officer. “This feature lets you securely review your personal medical information on your own schedule and stay informed about your health.”

Lab and imaging results can give you important insight into the status of your health or a particular condition. Lab and imaging results may also indicate if you need to take additional actions or schedule follow-up appointments. (Note: Certain lab tests, imaging, or specialty care appointments may require referrals, as described in the TRICARE Choices in the United States Handbook.)

You can also use the secure messaging feature on the MHS GENESIS Patient Portal to ask your provider any follow-up questions.

Even if you haven’t undergone a lab, test, or procedure, reviewing clinical notes after an appointment can help you recall important discussions, instructions, or care plans.
