Access COVID-19 test results via my ehealth

Effective immediately, outpatient COVID-19 test results from most areas of the province are available via my my ehealth. Approximately 1.12 million British Columbians are registered for this fast and secure method to receive their lab test results electronically via my ehealth. 

Patients need to provide a Personal Health Number (PHN) at the clinic or collection centre where their test is being done for results to be accessed via my my ehealth.

Exceptions: My ehealth is not used in the Vancouver Island and Interior Health regions.

More about my ehealth
As soon as results are released from the performing lab, they are available on the online portal.

  • Most results are available within 24 - 48 hours after coming for testing. 
  • The online portal is available in four languages and works on personal computers and mobile smartphones.
  • Patients that are not registered for my ehealth can call 1-888-522-7758 to obtain their Lab Visit Number (LVN) and get access to their COVID-19 test results.
  • New feature:  My ehealth users have the choice to receive an email alert when new test results are ready. My ehealth patients currently receive notifications for test result updates or amendments.
