What is Patient Portal?
A patient portal is a secure online website. It provides patients with efficient, 24-hour access to personal health information. A person should only have a connection to the Internet to get to know this information. The patient should create a personal account. You can get access to the following information:
- prior doctor appointments;
- case records;
- therapy prescribed;
- tests results.
Some patient portals also allow you to:
- safely contact your doctor;
- apply for Rx refills;
- plan non-urgent appointments;
- change contact information;
- make payments;
- get acquainted with educational materials.
The patient portal gives you an opportunity to care for your health. Patient portals can also save your time, help you contact your physician, and give you additional info between appointments.
