San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
Healthcare programming and web development company Medical Web Experts is announcing the release of a new version of their Enterprise Patient Portal. The newly released version 1.1.1 contains a number of new and updated features designed to improve functionality and user experience for both patients and medical offices.
Medical Web Experts’ patient portal is a fully-customizable web solution designed to offer healthcare organizations a way to streamline office functions by allowing patients to log in online and perform various functions (like request an appointment, see test results, view their medical histories, and even request prescription refill requests). The portal offers practices a way to increase revenue and efficiency as well as build a loyal patient base by providing a number of time-consuming patient services online. First developed in 2008, the portal is built on cloud-based technology and is well-suited to hospitals, large medical practices with many providers, and other healthcare organizations.
The Enterprise Patient Portal has also become an industry leader for its customizability and ability to interface with an EMR or EHR system. Successful implementation and use of an electronic medical records system can qualify a practice for federal funding under the 2009 HITECH Act’s “Meaningful Use” regulations – and by interfacing their electronic health records system with a patient portal, hospitals and doctors’ offices are able to improve usability and functionality for their patients and offices.
"This new version specifically demonstrates our commitment to helping practices meet Meaningful Use guidelines as we prepare for 2014 certification," says John Deutsch, CEO of Medical Web Experts. With Stage 2 Meaningful Use leaning heavily on requirements that increase patient engagement, many practices are looking for ways to improve the patient experience in conjunction with their EHR system.
New features in version 1.1.1 of the Enterprise Patient Portal include:
