10 Critical Features of Patient Portals – Overview

There are a lot of options available today in the Patient Portal world.  Health care organizations are doing everything they can to advance their technologies, lower costs, and improve patient care.  A Patient Portal is a key tool for accomplishing these goals.  Unfortunately, vendors are very aware of this and have poured many marketing dollars into making their products look good.  This post will highlight 10 important features that every Patient Portal should have.  Don’t take a vendor’s claim at face value, drill down and really question them in these areas to see how their products accommodate.  More often than not you will find that most come up short for a variety of reasons.  Reasons I will expand upon in future posts.
