Last summer, Seattle Children’s launched the Seattle Children’s Patient View (SCPV), a secure password-protected internet portal that allows non–Seattle Children’s referring physicians, other licensed referring healthcare practitioners and their support staff to access the Seattle Children’s medical records of the patients that they have a treatment relationship with.
Seattle Children’s recently upgraded the system, added a few new features and renamed it Pediatric Health Information Network (PHIN) Connect.
“We took SCPV, which was basically the system right out of the box, and reconfigured it to be more helpful and efficient for our referring providers,” says Keela Tiernan, systems analyst, Health Information Management. “We included a feedback form in PHINConnect, and encourage providers to let us know what they think of the system and share their suggestions for improvement.”
PHINConnect was configured to be more intuitive and user-friendly, and is scaled for multiple mobile platforms. Other new features include:
Providers who had SCPV accounts do not need to re-enroll. When you log into the portal, select the PHIN button.
If you did not have an SCPV account, here’s how to enroll in PHINConnect:

Seattle Children’s Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine offers a class to help teens manage their anxiety and discomfort in social situations. The group meets for nine, 60-minute classes and is for 13- to 17-year old teens who have been evaluated as having social anxiety difficulties and recommended for treatment.
If a teen wants to attend this group who isn’t already a patient, there is an initial evaluation session offered to determine whether or not this group is right for them. Teens do not have to be in individual therapy to attend this group. A parent group called Helping Your Anxious Child is offered at the same time as this group and participants are recommended to register for both groups at the same time.
