What is My Health Rec?
My Health Rec is an online health management tool that uses proven, credible and widely-embraced technology which offers patients enhanced access to and ownership of their personal health information.
How will My Health Rec benefit me?
Atlanta Medical Center’s launch of My Health Rec allows you to view, download and transmit your up-to-date health information. Specifically, you can:
