Morton Plant Mease Delivers My Health News by E-mail|
New Web Service Providing Personalized Health Care Information
CLEARWATER, Fla., (February 20, 2008) - Finding trustworthy, relevant health information while keeping up with medical appointments just got easier thanks to My Health News, a new internet-based program from Morton Plant Mease Health Care. The free, personalized e-newsletter and health reminder service is the first of its kind in Pasco and Pinellas County and joins a long list of valuable internet-based health services provided by Morton Plant Mease.
My Health News (http://mpmhealth.privatehealthnews.com) allows subscribers to customize the health information they want to receive — based on age, gender and health needs — by choosing from more than 25 topics and services. Subscribers then receive only the topics and information they request. The information e-mailed is selected from hundreds of publications and journals, medically reviewed and published in the last 60 days.
“My Health News adds a new dimension to the way we serve our community,” said Phillip K. Beauchamp, Morton Plant Mease Health Care president and chief executive officer. “We’re committed to improving the health of local residents, and this new resource will give them easy access to the current health information that matters most to them.”
Available services include:
- My Health Newsletter – Subscribers pick the health topics they want more information on. Three current articles drawn from more than 350 of the nation’s leading health publications are then e-mailed monthly on each topic.
- My Health Reminders – After entering age and gender, free, timely reminders are e-mailed for all the key health screenings and exams needed to maintain good health. Subscribers can sign up everyone in their family, as well.
- My Baby Expectations – Soon-to-be new parents subscribe to this free, monthly e-mail newsletter covering pregnancy, delivery and baby’s first year. Each month’s installment is a guide on what to expect that month, timed to the baby’s due date.
Other web-based health information services offered by Morton Plant Mease includes “E-mail a Patient”, launched earlier this year, which allows get well messages to be sent electronically. Online birth classes and “Care Pages” – a personal web page updating a patient’s condition – were added last year. Access these services and others at www.mpmhealth.com.
