Coastal Medical Patient Portal

Coastal Medical Patient Portal

Coastal's previous patient portal (eCW/Healow) will be disabled as of May 6.

Note: The following information applies only to those who were Coastal patients prior to Coastal’s migration to Lifespan’s electronic health record (EHR) on 2/5/2024 and had an active account in Coastal’s previous patient portal.

In February, Coastal switched to Lifespan’s electronic health record (EHR). At that time, patient health information was moved to the new EHR platform. Currently, Coastal patients can still view their historical records on the previous portal, for a limited time.

However, as May 6, 2024, Coastal’s previous patient portal (eCW/Healow) has been permanently disabled. As a result, you are no longer able to log into your previous portal account. This also means you will not be able to access your historical health information with Coastal prior to 2/5/2024 – this applies to both your previous portal and the new MyLifespan portal.

This information will not be lost. Coastal clinicians and care teams have access to it. You may submit a request for copies of your health record documents by contacting your practice, or you can use this secure online Release of Health Information form at any time.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
