Your Patient Portal, “One Stop Shop” for Medication Info
Location in the Portal
Your RMH Patient Portal provides a central online location for managing your personal healthcare. Medication information is found in the Medication section under the Health Record section of your RMH Patient Portal.
Print-ready List of Medications
The patient portal contains a list of all of the medications and dosages included in your RMH healthcare records. If you need to take a list of your medications with you for any reason, this list can be easily printed out.
If you want information about a specific medication, you can click on “Learn More About This”.
Note: If you are on a medication that has not been prescribed by an RMH provider, please be sure to communicate this information so that this medication will be included in your record. Otherwise only these medications will not appear in your record.
Physical Appearance by Manufacturer
The portal includes a series of pictures showing what each medication looks like. Since there is no standardization of shape, size and color among drug manufacturers, the portal includes pictures of many different variations of the medication, listed according to manufacturer. If there is an alternative name for the medication, this is listed as well.
