In today’s healthcare environment, patients and their healthcare teams are increasingly finding that directly messaging each other is an efficient and effective way to help manage patients’ healthcare needs. When actually integrated into patients’ lives, valued added benefits of a patient portal include ease of communication, faster solutions and efficient chronic disease management. MHS GENESIS (electronic health record) is the mechanism for 60th Medical Group enrolled patients to accomplish this type of two-way communication. For 60th Medical Group patients, the MHS GENESIS Patient Portal replaced TRICARE Online (TOL) Secure Messaging on Sept. 6, 2019 with the transition to MHS GENESIS.
The MHS GENESIS Patient Portal is available 24/7. Once you’re registered for the patient portal, these are the types of things you can accomplish locally:
- View certain diagnostic test results
- Review you immunizations

Note: Personal health notes and results are available for care provided on/after Jan. 6, 2019. Additional features and capabilities through the Patient Portal are anticipated in the future.
