Bon Secours Health System, a four-hospital system based in Richmond, Va., is offering a branded version of the Fort Wayne, Ind.-based personal health record (PHR) as part of its “mybonsecours” online patient portal.

The portal enables patients to search for online health content, check symptoms and perform financial transactions. From the mybonsecours PHR, patients can create a health record, locate a Bon Secours physician and send their PHR to that physician in advance of a medical visit, according to the company. The mybonsecours PHR will also be integrated with Bon Secours practice management systems, EMR systems and the MedVirginia health information exchange.

Bon Secours Richmond is a not-for-profit health system with four hospitals in the Richmond area: St. Mary’s Hospital, St. Francis Medical Center, Memorial Regional Medical Center and Richmond Community Hospital, as well as Bon Secours HealthSource, composed of more than 20 physician practice groups.
