Partners Patient Gateway

Welcome to Mass. Eye and Ear – a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School in the fields of eye, ear, nose, throat, head and neck surgery. Mass. Eye and Ear strives to make your surgical experience as pleasant as possible. To start the pre-surgical assessment process, Mass. Eye and Ear requires that you or a family member fill out your medical history online with Partners Patient Gateway.

Please enter your medical history online as soon as your surgery has been scheduled. Once you have accessed Partners Patient Gateway, locate the Health Information Questionnaire. Once you do this, one of our Pre-operative Review clinicians will be able to access the information you entered online. This information will assist the nurse in organizing and documenting your complete medical history to prepare for your surgery. As part of this process, you may receive a telephone call from a member of our Pre-operative Review team to review your history.

Be sure to have the following information available before accessing Partners Patient Gateway:

  • Your health insurance information.
  • The names, addresses and phone numbers of your physicians.
  • A list of all medications you are taking, their dosage and frequency.
  • A list of surgical procedures you have ever had
  • The name of the surgeon who will be performing your upcoming procedure
