What is RWJ Health Connect?

The Robert Wood Johnson Health System has partnered with Jersey Health Connect to provide an online service that makes getting in touch with your doctor managing your healthcare easier than ever, reducing barriers to collaboration and enhancing care efficiency.
 
By enrolling in the RWJ Health Connect patient portal, patients can:

  • View RWJ lab and radiology results online
  • Update their healthcare record
  • Connect with participating physicians
    • Request/cancel appointments 
    • Request medication refills
    • Request a referral
  • View results from other hospitals and participating providers in the Jersey Health Connect network

Why Participate?

Participating in RWJ Health Connect enables your healthcare providers to easily access medical information that supports your care. Helping your providers collaborate can improve the quality of care you receive, help prevent potential medical errors, and reduce unnecessary testing or treatments. Participating also enables you to be actively engaged with your providers to help manage your healthcare.

By connecting participants throughout the delivery of care, Jersey Health Connect supports greater collaboration to benefit providers and patients alike.

A Health Information Organization (HIO) is a group of healthcare facilities established to help patients and their authorized healthcare providers, treating the same patient, share — or exchange — relevant healthcare information. A health information exchange helps ensure that only patients and caregivers who are authorized — including physicians, hospitals, labs, etc.— have secure, instant access to your vital medical information. This helps your caregiver have access to needed medical information to provide you with the best care possible.

The Jersey Health Connect HIO was created to help patients and caregivers in central and northern New Jersey share health information. Dozens of hospitals, health systems, physician practices and other providers are currently collaborating through Jersey Health Connect.

What are the benefits to patients?
Historically, a major obstacle in care delivery has been untimely and limited access to patient medical information. Since most patients see multiple providers, their medical information has to be shared across different systems based on different technologies. These technical differences create barriers to both sharing and using information in a timely manner, resulting in delays, duplicated efforts and testing, potential errors, etc. Through participation in RWJ Helath Connect, providers can quickly share medical data, making it easier to collaborate on patient care to support better outcomes. It also makes it easier for patients to participate in their care by providing timely, secure access to all relevant medical information.

How is my medical information secured?
Protecting patient privacy is a top priority for Jersey Health Connect and access to patient data is strictly regulated. Many State and Federal laws set strict guidelines for protecting patient privacy. Additionally, Jersey Health Connect has internal requirements above and beyond those set by law. At Jersey Health Connect, we realize that patients must feel confident and comfortable with participating, and we make every effort to ensure patient data is securely managed.
