Medical Web Experts, a leading web development and healthcare programming company, has announced the release of the newest version of their Enterprise Patient Portal. Medical Web Experts has been working to perfect the portal in terms of functionality and ease of use, and version 1.1.1 delivers on both counts.
The updated portal features a redesigned home page with a clear overview of all available features, an audit log for providers to review patient activity in the portal, and customizable patient intake forms that can be cross-referenced with patients’ electronic health records. Patients now also have the ability to deactivate their own account from within the portal.
According to Medical Web Experts CEO John Deutsch, the new version of the portal demonstrates the company’s commitment to helping practices achieve meaningful use. The second stage of Meaningful Use (which kicks off in 2014) requires the use of a patient portal for several mandatory objectives.
Medical Web Experts’ Enterprise Patient Portal was first developed in 2008 and is built on cloud-based technology. It is highly customizable, can interface with most EMR and EHR systems, and is well-suited to hospitals, clinics and physician practices of all shapes and sizes.
Medical organizations using the patient portal can boost revenue and improve practice efficiency by making it possible for patients to perform time-consuming services online.
