  • One patient record per individual for better and more convenient care:  One comprehensive medical record per individual will be shared at each site.  Patient information will flow seamlessly at all HCCA/ TRMC sites.
  • Patient portal allows access to health records at any time:  Every patient will have the ability to access their new patient portal, MYcare Team Connect, from any internet-connected computer.  Patients can view their important health information, download lab results, check appointments, pay bills, and securely communicate with physicians and their offices.
