Today's complex health care environment requires physicians and hospitals to work together to achieve excellence in clinical quality, patient safety and service quality. One of the ways we achieve that kind of partnership is through the OhioHealth Physician Group (OPG), a medical group of OhioHealth physicians, advance practice providers and associates.
We work hard to understand the needs of our patients, and we are continuously innovating to improve the patient experience, from access to care and information to the design of our practices. Utilizing our online electronic medical record system, OPG providers and OhioHealth hospitals work together to provide seamless, patient-centered care. As a result of this collaboration, patients who activate an OhioHealth MyChart account can communicate directly with their physicians, request prescription refills and schedule appointments, as well as have 24/7 access to their medical history, prescription list, test and lab results, and upcoming appointments. OhioHealth MyChart also allows our patients to access E-Visits, an online visit with their primary care physician for non-urgent healthcare needs. We also offer same-day and after-hours apointments at the OhioHealth Primary Care Physicians Express Appointment Center for non-urgent healthcare needs.
Being part of OhioHealth Physician Group offers practice stability, financial security and work-life balance.
