News and Updates

Starting January 28, 2015, clients using Lower Mainland Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (LM Labs) services in the Fraser Health region can access their outpatient lab results through the online my ehealth system.

My ehealth is a secure web-based portal (available in English, French, Punjabi and Chinese) that provides clients with timely access to lab test results at www.myehealth.ca or through the my ehealth mobile app.

You may already be familiar with my ehealth as it has been available to clients who attend Vancouver Coastal Health and Providence Health Care labs since 2011, as well as through LifeLabs, BC Biomedical and Valley Medical Labs.

After January 28, Fraser Health clients can register for my ehealth when they go for their next outpatient lab test at a LM Lab. Fraser Health clients will have access to results online (starting from the time of their initial registration) for up to 465 different tests.
