Seattle Children’s Patient View Gets a New Look, New Name and New Features

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:

  • Access to radiology images
  • Better print functionality, including the ability to print from any window
  • Fishbone diagrams for lab results
  • Ability to change “my filters” from any screen in a patient’s record
  • Option to create a custom list of frequently seen patients so you can quickly access their records

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:

  • Download the PHINConnect registration form and complete it on your computer.
  • Email is preferred for submitting the form. Please send it as an attachment to gateway@seattlechildrens.org. We recommend you save it to your computer first. If you cannot email the form, print and fax it to 206-985-3118.
  • Choose someone within your practice to be an administrator. That person will be responsible for verifying continued access for each of the members of the group account.
  • Once you are provisioned for a PHINConnect account, you will receive a welcome email explaining the identity verification steps required to establish a PHINConnect user ID and password for access.

To learn more or sign up, visit the Seattle Children's PHINConnect website.

If you have questions or problems accessing PHINConnect, contact the support team at 206-987-4444 or gateway@seattlechildrens.org.


Taking Action for Social Anxiety Teen Group

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.

Questions? Contact Seattle Children’s Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine at 206-987-2164 or view the flyer for more information.
