Patients Want Their Providers Online

The second-annual study from Intuit Health, the Health Care Check-Up Survey, found that 73% of Americans surveyed would use secure online tools to access lab results, request appointments, pay medical bills, and communicate with their doctor's office. CarePrecise began building web portals for healthcare providers a few years ago, and has seen a rise in interest from providers, who want to be able to point patients to written information in the controlled environment of their websites. Providers are also looking at adding scheduling applications, and some are participating in PHRs (patient health record portals). Read the Information Week article.

  1. Do your sites include patient information pages? I.e., a page where we can send patients for information on our HIPAA stuff, billing, co-payment on visit, etc.?

  2. Yes. Check out one of our recent sites, for The Bridge Health Clinics, at http://www.thebridgehealthclinics.com/ and click the New Client Info link. This is the link that new patients are referred to for details they can check on at home.
