Manage your health and keep in touch with your Beacon healthcare team with MyBeacon. This secure, online source gives you 24/7 access to your medical records so you can stay informed, connected and in control of your health – any time and anywhere. You can check test results and use secure messaging to contact your Beacon doctor’s office directly.
Ask your doctor how long you can expect to wait for test results. While many routine lab results could be available on MyBeacon within a couple of days, other test results may take several days or even weeks to become available on the portal. Some factors that could impact your test results reporting include the test type, test complexity or if your testing requires samples to be sent away to a national reference lab.
It is possible that your test results may be available in your health record before your doctor’s office has been able to reach you. Your results are very important to your doctor and will be handled as quickly as possible. Sometimes your doctor will want to discuss your results with you, in person, during an appointment.
It’s important to remember, since most medical reports are written for and interpreted by trained medical providers, they may include words that may seem more reassuring or concerning than the reality. Your doctor will consider your results as one piece of the puzzle – and interpret them in the context of your overall care.
Please keep in mind, it is very important to discuss any and all results with your ordering doctor before making any additional decisions about your healthcare.
