Go to Your Menu > My Record > COVID-19.

Vaccinations/Boosters

COVID-19 Test Results

If you have had COVID-19 tests done at Community, your test results may also be found in this section.

Personal Notes

The Personal Notes feature allows you to add your own secure notes about your healthcare right where you need them most.

You may add personal notes on the following pages:

  • Allergies
  • Medications
  • Problems
  • Immunizations
  • Preventive Care
  • Medical / Social / Surgical / FamilyHistory
  • Family Status

Health Record Summary

To see a summary of your medical record, go to Your Menu > My Record > Health Summary. This summary includes:

  • Current health issues
  • Medications
  • Allergies

  1. Go to Test Results in the top menu
  2. Click on Your Menu > My Record > Test Results
