| Posted On Jan 07, 2019 | By:

Happy New Year! We hope that 2018 was a great year for you and that 2019 will be even better. To get your year started off on the right track, we are sharing a list of 5 things you can do to stay connected with your Atrius Health care team and help you stay healthy.

1. Save Your Doctor’s Office Phone Number in Your Phone to Call Us Anytime

Did you know that all Atrius Health patients have access to 24/7 medical advice? Even after our offices are closed, all you have to do is call your doctor’s office and follow the prompts to be connected with our team of medical staff who will provide medical advice by phone. If necessary, our staff can consult an on-call Atrius Health physician, schedule you for an appointment at one of our practices that offer urgent care, or direct you to an emergency room.

Having your doctor’s office phone number saved in your phone contacts will make it easier to get the medical advice you need whether you are sick at 2 p.m. or 2 a.m. You should always call 911 if you think you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency.

2. Sign Up for MyHealth Online

Did you know that all Atrius Health patients can register for a free MyHealth Online account? MyHealth Online is the easiest way to stay connected to your doctor’s office. Through this secure web portal and mobile app, patients can:

You can enroll online for MyHealth or sign-up when you are next in the office for a visit.

3. Transfer Your Prescriptions to an Atrius Health Pharmacy

Save a trip to an outside pharmacy! Atrius Health has pharmacies located at 15 of our locations and any Atrius Health patient may use our pharmacies. When your prescription is sent to one of our pharmacies during your visit, you can stop by to pick it up on your way out.

Our pharmacists are always available to help with questions about your medications and can easily transfer prescriptions from other pharmacies. Let us know the details and we’ll take care of the rest! We also offer mail service at no additional charge and have a variety of over-the-counter products available at competitive prices.

The next time you need a prescription filled, be sure to let your Atrius Health clinician know you would like it filled at an Atrius Health pharmacy.

4. Get Your Flu Shot

Massachusetts is one of many states reporting “widespread” flu activity, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If you haven’t received your flu shot yet, it’s not too late! Call your doctor’s office to schedule a flu vaccination appointment for you or your child. Visit our website to read All About the Flu.

5. Update Your Insurance Information

If you have a new health insurance plan for 2019, be sure to let us know about any changes to your insurance information by calling our Patient Registration department at 1-800-249-1767. You can also update your insurance information when you check in for your next visit or through MyHealth in the Billing section.
