PocketHealth: Making Your Health Records More Transparent

North Carolina Specialty Hospital (NCSH) now offers patients PocketHealth, an easy way to access and share electronic imaging.

We’re making it easier for you to access important health records and information and share it with your medical team.

What is PocketHealth?

PocketHealth is a digital records-sharing system used by physicians and patients. The system allows patients to store and share health-care images, like X-ray images.

The PocketHealth storage and sharing system allows medical facilities, physicians, and patients to share medical imaging records quickly, efficiently, and securely.

How Does PocketHealth Work?

A staff member in scrubs and a mask assists a patient who is having a CT scan.To store, access, and share electronic imaging, patients set up a PocketHealth account, which is easy to do. All you need is your Medical Record Number (MRN), which NCSH will provide. Use your MRN to enroll in an account here.

With an account created, you can request diagnostic imaging records online using a mobile device, tablet, or computer. The system gives you access to your entire imaging history at NCSH and the ability to burn a CD/USB and share your images, all from the account page online.
