Patient portals are online health care applications that allow patients to interact and communicate with their health care providers regarding their patient health information. For example, upon notification, patients may be able to log in and view their lab results from their clinician.
Patient portals are a key component to both improving communication with patients and satisfying federal meaningful use requirements. Creating an effective patient portal requires a combination of design, web development, workflow and process development. Clinical Technology Advisors can assist with the development of your portal. CTA can:
- Integrate the portal with your existing website and other online presence.
- Create specialized content and integration with your EMR to allow for structured communication from patients.
- Provide secure messaging to protect patient data on the portal.
- Develop patient registration and verification processes to speed adoption.
Effective patient portals provide easy and effective communication between providers, staff and patients which reduce time on phones and improve patient loyalty. Contact us today to learn how we can help.
