Patient Portal Information

Patient Portal Information

George Mason Student Health Services uses a secure, online patient portal.  Currently, students can view and enter immunization records, upload documents, enter insurance information, read education documents you have received from Student Health, and get secure messages from your provider. Other features will be made available as we continue with implementation. If you have difficulty using the Patient Portal, please use the electronic form below to report it to Student Health Services.

How to access the patient portal

You will be directed to the log in page sso.medicatconnect.com. You will need your George Mason University Net ID (user ID) and patriot password to log in. Select “George Mason University” as your school.

How to upload documents in the patient portal

Step 1: Scan and save your documents individually to your computer or take a picture. This is completed outside of the patient portal using your scanner software or smart phone. If you are uploading multiple documents, you will need to scan/take a picture and save each document as a separate file.

  • Images must be .png, .tiff, .jpg, .jpeg, .gif. Documents must be .txt or .pdf.
  • Files must be smaller than 4 MB. Scan in black and white, or at a setting of 150 DPI to get a smaller file.
  • Do not include any special characters in the file name.

Step 2: Select “Upload”. Choose the document you are uploading in the “Choose document you are uploading” drop down menu.

Step 3: Click on “Select File,” and locate the file on your computer or smart phone.

Step 4: Click on the Upload button. The document will be listed below, as a confirmation that the document was added to the queue. If you made a mistake you may delete the file by clicking on the “X” at the end of the document name which is listed next to the Change box.

All the documents you have chosen to upload will appear below the Documents already on file section as a confirmation they were successfully uploaded.
