What is a Patient Portal?
A patient portal uses the convenience of online access to streamline some of the most time-consuming interactions and tasks required of a medical practice.
By shifting non-urgent communications from telephone, "snail" mail and in-person methods to the web, practices will likely see improved efficiencies, reduced operating costs and increased patient satisfaction. In addition, the 24/7 Internet access to a patient portal allows patients and medical staff alike to request, provide and obtain information in a time frame that is more convenient for everyone involved.

How a patient portal helps your practice.
By conducting your most frequent patient interactions and practice tasks online — including scheduling, registration forms, information requests, billing and more — a medical practice can dramatically improve the efficiency of its front desk, billing and clinical staffs.
The reduction in paperwork, postage and other related costs can represent substantial savings, and the growing popularity of billable online patient/physician consultations provides a valuable new potential revenue source. Show me client results.
*According to a recent study, 72% of patients report that they would like to connect with their physicians online, and indicate that the ability to do so could influence their choice of provider.
