Nurse practitioners: MyHealth Records change

Jan 18, 2021

Starting Feb. 1, about 95% of the most commonly-ordered (by volume) lab test results will be viewable for Albertans through the My Personal Records (MPR) application. All remaining lab tests, including more complex results in microbiology, pathology and genetics, will be available on MPR by July 1, 2021.

The expectations for nurse practitioners (NPs) will not change. You will still be expected to provide the rationale and to follow up about test results with patients. As patients are able to view more information, NPs should consider or may need to provide patients with more context around the diagnostic tests.
