MIT Medical fully converted to Follow My Health, a new healthcare portal, at the beginning of this year. The voluntary program will among other things allow patients to check and update their own medical records, as well as provide a better means of remote communication between patient and doctor.

On Jan. 1, 2014, MIT Medical fully converted to a new healthcare portal called Follow My Health, replacing an older portal called Patient Online. Follow My Health will support features absent from Patient Online, such as the ability for patients to view lab results. Like Patient Online, Follow My Health has the right to sell aggregate data, but will not compromise any patient privacy in the process.
