10:00 AM PT, 1:00 PM ET


Practices that have invested time and money in choosing, implementing, and converting to electronic health records are ready to reap the benefits—and patients portals are an important key to success. A well-implemented patient portal will help you achieve Meaningful Use incentives AND improve patient engagement and compliance while also simplifying time-consuming office tasks like reporting lab results and medical records requests. In addition to the financial and workflow benefits, patients are actually eager to connect with their physicians electronically. You just need to know how to make it all happen

In this webinar, Laurie Morgan will share strategies to help you:

  • Successfully implement your patient portal
  • Improve patient engagement, compliance, and outcomes
  • Meet some requirements to attest for Stage 2 of Meaningful Use

You’ll leave this webinar able to realize more of the benefits of your EHR and patient portal!

Who should attend? Practice managers, healthcare providers, and anyone else who is interested in using and make the most of a patient portal
