Engaging patients in their own health as well as in the administrative aspects of their care is more important than ever. A Patient Portal can deliver this to patients, but only if patients utilize it.
A Patient Portal + the Update for HealthTM eNewsletter (branded for each individual practice) = the best solution for Patient Engagement, Patient Portal Utilization, Meaningful Use, and PCMH support.
