Frequently Asked Questions
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911 and do not use online messaging.
Why is there two separate patient portal account log in options?
KSB Hospital has had a patient portal since approximately 2012. The existing KSB Hospital Portal allows patients to see various labs, radiology, and visit summary notes that are sent from activities at the Hospital Campus. Some clinic items may or may not flow into the portal depending on their format. This previous sole-existing KSB Hospital Portal is only guaranteed to provide hospital campus-based information mentioned previously. In order to allow you access to your off-campus, clinic-based health records, KSB Clinic Portal was created through our electronic health record vendor, Cerner. The KSB Clinic Portal allows you access to various parts of your health record electronically. Please note that Radiology is not included in your KSB Clinic Portal at this time.
Will I always have two portal accounts?
KSB Hospital and Medical Group are excited to share with you that in March of 2019 you will be able to access your hospital and clinic records on one platform, with one log-in. You will have to sign up for the combined portal account at that time, and it is unknown what historical information will be loaded. You will retain access to your historical portal accounts for an undetermined amount of time, but you will be able to manage all your care at KSB moving forward starting March 2019, on the one secure portal.
How does the KSB Patient Portal benefit my health care?
KSB Patient Portals allow you to go online to request non-urgent appointments, view most lab results, send secure messages to your care teams, request prescription refills and see a summary of medications, allergies, immunizations and medical issues. Other functionalities may be added at any time.
How do I sign up for the KSB Patient Portal?
You can enroll in the KSB Patient Portal while visiting KSB for an appointment or over the phone. Speak with a member of your care team to start the enrollment process. You will need access to the internet and a valid email address to receive an invite. You may also self-enroll for the patient portal by clicking the portal icons, located at the top of this page.
What if I didn’t receive my invitation email?
Please check your spam or junk mail folders in your email account. If you still can’t find it, please call our KSB Patient Portal Specialists at 815-285-5424 and ask them to verify your email address and resend the invitation.
Can I enroll my spouse, child or another family member in the KSB Patient Portal?
Parents/legal guardians of a minor child from 0-11 years of age can enroll for a portal account on behalf of the minor. If your child is ages 12-17 years of age your child will need to be present and a consent form will need signed by you and your child to allow you proxy access to your child’s account. Due to certain federal and state laws, your child’s consent from ages 12-17 is required for you to access their electronic medical record. You can always obtain their full medical record at our Health Information Management (HIM) Department located at 101 W. First Street, Dixon, IL. You can only enroll for access to another adult’s medical information if KSB has a documented and active medical power of attorney on file.
Can I ask questions regarding a family member from my KSB Patient Portal account?
No. Your KSB Patient Portal account is specific to your health care and is tied only to your medical record.
