A new computer program at Essentia has patients just a mouse click away from their doctor.

It's called "My Health." It takes a patient a couple of minutes to sign up,

from there they can check their medical history, receive test results the second they come in and email any questions to their doctor.

Doctors then are required to answer an email within a day or two.

Dr. Lara Lund from Essentia says, "you know it's such a great portal to access your patients in a secure manner through email which really seems to be the desired route of communication with a lot of younger people."

Dr. Lunde says it's eliminating patients having long waits on the phone.
