A Legally Compliant Patient Portal
As part of the 2009 economic stimulus law, medical practices and hospitals must have a patient portal on their website by 2015 or have their Medicaid or Medicare reimbursement funding reduced. Patient portals provide convenient, secure online access to electronic health records (EHRs). Patient portals are intended to empower patients by providing easy access to important information about their personal health, reducing unnecessary doctor’s visits and encouraging a healthy lifestyle.
ACS, Inc. was able to integrate a secure patient portal for SOS’ site, ensuring SOS is on the right side of the law. The patient portal requirements also mandate that 5% of an organization’s patients use the patient portal. Knowing this, our usability experts made SOS’ patient portal optimized for convenience, making patient portal buttons highly visible on both the top and bottom of every page.
To avoid a partial loss of your hospital or medical practices’ federal funding, contact us for secure, user-friendly patient portal integration.
