Getting Your Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record

On Monday, January 10, Massachusetts introduced the “My Vax Records” tool. It allows residents to search the Massachusetts Immunization Information System (MIIS) for their vaccine records. When the records are found, the tool generates a QR code to store on your phone, creating a digital COVID-19 vaccine “passport” to show when required (e.g., for indoor dining or travel). While the system has worked well for many, the state has provided some information and guidance to help should you find missing or incorrect information in the MIIS.

Virtual Telehealth Visits for Patients Not Living in Massachusetts

This notice applies only to patients who are out-of-state at the time of their virtual telehealth appointment.

Most states have very strict laws that require healthcare clinicians to be licensed to practice in the state where a patient is located in order to provide care to that patient, including care that is done via a virtual telehealth visit. During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, many states relaxed these licensing requirements on a temporary basis.

MyHealth Test Results

Atrius Health is making some changes to the information available in your MyHealth account. Beginning April 10, 2021, we will release imaging, pathology, and other lab results as soon as they become available. Until this time, providers had access to test results before they were made available to patients. This change builds on our commitment to provide our patients with better access to their health information to help them engage with their health care providers and manage their care.

A Scientific Approach to Improving Patient Care

When you hear “research,” you may think of test tubes and microscopes. But at Atrius Health’s Center for Clinical Research, it means taking a scientific approach to improving patient care.

“We help measure and evaluate not only the way care is provided but the quality of care that’s provided,” says John Zambrano, M.D., Medical Director for the Center for Clinical Research. “One is really aimed at doing things better, and the other one is really aimed at assessing whether or not that thing that we’re doing in the practice is actually making an impact on our patients.”

The Center for Clinical Research strives to improve the already high standard of care patients receive at Atrius Health.
