Test and Lab results

Test results are visible in HealthyU as soon as they are available. This includes, but is not limited to labs, test results and x-rays. Your healthcare team will review these results with you; however, results may be viewable before a call or appointment can be scheduled to do so. Here are a few frequently asked questions surrounding this situation.

  • Can I view the test results before my healthcare team communicates with me?
    • Absolutely. These are your test results, and you can view them on the HealthyU patient portal as soon as they are available at your convenience.
  • Do all test results mean the same thing for all patients?
    • Not necessarily. Not all test results are easy to understand without medical training and it's normal to have questions. Your care team is available to discuss details and provide insight on your test results and what them mean to you and your unique history and health goals.
  • What should I do if I have questions?
    • We encourage open communication. If you have questions about your results, please ask your care team. You can call or send a secure message over the patient portal.
