Columbus Regional Health recently launched My Pregnancy Journey, a brand new mobile-based extension of their online patient portal, MyChart.

When an expectant parent registers for My Pregnancy Journey, they can begin tracking their pregnancy and enroll in the care plan. The portal personalizes the pregnancy experience, offering patients helpful, educational content and weekly reminders.

With CRH’s new My Pregnancy Journey, patients can use their computers or mobile devices to review digital prenatal education from a trusted source and track important decisions and tasks that need to happen at specific pregnancy milestones.

Patients will receive prompts to complete tasks based on their gestational age, like taking a daily multivitamin, learning about prenatal testing options, preparing for breastfeeding, and planning for maternity leave. As the patient completes steps in the app, that information appears in the patient record, and care team members can see areas where the patient might need additional support. If needed, the care team can provide additional educational materials and support directly through My Pregnancy Journey.

Patients will also have the ability to track the size of their baby as their pregnancy progresses. Each week, patients will receive an update on the size of the baby compared to fruits and vegetables. For example, at 22 weeks, the baby is the size of a grapefruit.

My Pregnancy Journey is an extension of CRH’s MyChart patient portal.

MyChart offers patients personalized and secure on-line access to portions of their medical records. It enables you to securely use the Internet to help manage and receive information about your health. With MyChart, you can use the Internet to:

●      Request medical appointments.

●      View your health summary from the MyChart electronic health record.

●      View test results.

●      Request prescription renewals.

●      Access trusted health information resources.

●      Communicate electronically and securely with your medical care team.
