Welcome to NMC’s Patient Portal
Powered by Meditech
For your convenience and continuity of care, we have made patient health information available to each individual.
Our Patient Portal is a secure way to share health records, communicate with healthcare providers, view medication history and more. Key Portal features include convenience, quick access, and security of information. Health Information from all hospital and physician practice visits are accessible through NMC’s Patient Portal.
NMC’s Portal covers all NMC hospital services as well as NMC’s physician and specialty practices.
In addition to the NMC MHealth Portal Application, NMC is pleased to provide you access to your health information through other Personal Health Record Applications on your smart phone.

Faster Results Through Your Patient Portal
This spring, NMC implemented a few changes in the Patient Portal that you may have noticed:
- Faster Results: Tests and reports are now available as soon as they are finalized. Prior to this, some laboratory results and imaging reports were not available immediately after they were finalized. This change means that you may see test results before your care team is able to review them. When your providers order tests for you, talk with them about how you would like to receive and review results.
- Visit Notes: Your detailed visit notes are now available as soon as they are finalized by your care team. Prior to this, not all notes were available. NOTE: If you have given someone else proxy access to your medical record, they will also be able to view these notes.
- Proxy Access: If you have given someone access to your Patient Portal account – called proxy access – your proxies will be able to view the detailed visit notes and records, including information that may be considered sensitive.
- If you have any questions, talk to your Primary Care Provider, Ordering provider or call our Health Information Management team at 524-1060.
NMC’s Medent/Physician Practice Portal closure. Effective April 17 2019, access to this portal was closed and you patients transitioned to accessing health records through our new and improved Meditech portal.
