Patient Portal

Patient Portal

According to HealthIT.gov, a patient portal is a secure website that allows patients convenient, 24-hour online access to personal health information. Using a secure username and password, patients can access personal health records like discharge summaries, immunization histories, lab results, and more. Additionally, some patient portal software allows patients and providers to interact online; patients can ask providers health or billing-related requestions, request prescription refills, schedule or cancel appointments, update demographic and registration information, pay bills, view educational materials, and more. Physicians attesting for Stage 2 of the Meaningful Use and EHR Incentive Program are required to provide a web portal for their patients and meet certain standards for the level of the portal’s use.
