This is a news release from Forrest General Hospital

Patients at Forrest General who want to connect with their healthcare provider, manage their appointments and view their medical information, any time of the day, using any Internet-connecting device can now do it quickly and easily with the help of Iris.

Iris is a secure Internet application, commonly called a patient portal, that allows patients to have convenient online access to portions of their medical record and allows them to engage in online communications with their healthcare provider. Iris is a service provided to patients by Forrest Health and Hattiesburg Clinic. Forrest Health facilities currently offering Iris include: Forrest General, Lincoln Center Clinic, OB/GYN Group, Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services, The Orthopedic Institute and Tylertown Family Clinic. Hattiesburg Clinic began offering Iris to their patients in 2011.

Patients are given an activation code at their physician's office or at the hospital upon discharge. They log in and enter their activation code and choose their own user name and password to gain access to their medical information.

Only one log-in and password is needed for those who are patients of both Forrest Health and Hattiesburg Clinic. Iris is also available on iPhone and Android phones through the "MyChart" free app.

Patients have several ways to sign up for Iris: They can call the Iris Help Desk at (601) 579-5432, send an e-mail to irishelp@forrestgeneral.com, or speak to a Forrest Health or Hattiesburg Clinic staff member at their next appointment or hospital stay.
