Hawarden Regional Healthcare uses Patient Portal as a convenient way for our patients to access their health information.
Patient Portal Features:
Creating a Patient Portal account is easy!
The next time you are at the Hawarden Regional Healthcare Hospital or Clinics, let a staff member know you would like to be registered for the Patient Portal.
* You will need an active email account to create your Patient Portal
Step 1. Receive an invitation email or text from Hawarden Regional Healthcare (be sure to ask your caregiver for an invitation!)
Step 2. Click on the link provided, click on the “Create an Account” tab, and enter your PIN and last name to identify yourself.
Step 3. Provide your current email address, password and secret question-answers—then click “Register.”
Once you have finished registering, you will receive a verification email. Click the link in that email to complete the registration process. You now have a secure Patient Portal account!
Is the Patient Portal secure?
The Patient Portal is very secure—your information is protected with the same high level of security that all healthcare organizations are required to follow.
Information you access within your Patient Portal is protected with secure SSL encryption—the same security protocol that banks use to protect your financial information.
Any messages you send to—or receive from—your doctor or provider exists only within your secure portal; the confidential information in those messages is never sent through potentially unsecure email.
Your Patient Portal account is password protected and linked to your verified email address.
As with any online account you manage, you will want to keep your login credentials safe by:
1.) Not sharing your username and password with others
2.) Creating a “strong” password, or one that is hard to guess
3.) Logging out of your account when you’re done accessing your Patient Portal account
