Nothing is more important to quality healthcare delivery than the providers' ability to communicate with patients
SAN ANTONIO (PRWEB) December 16, 2008
The Patient Portal is included in Sevocity ™ EHR 5.2, the newest release of the Sevocity electronic health record solution. The Portal will enhance physicians' ability to communicate with patients and enable proactive patient care:
Physicians and customers can utilize Sevocity EHR to securely communicate with their patients over the Internet. Patients will receive email notification of office communications and access their information in the Patient Portal where they can respond, if needed. Patients save time by requesting prescription refills and appointment scheduling online as well as making billing inquiries and other requests. Sevocity develops, maintains and supports Electronic Health Record solutions (also called Electronic Medical Record or EMR systems) for physician practices and community health centers across the country. Sevocity also offers an integrated practice management (PM) solution or free interfaces with other PM providers for clinics that need a complete EHR and PM solution.
Unlike other EHR vendors, Sevocity will offer the Patient Portal at no additional cost to its customers. "Nothing is more important to quality healthcare delivery than the providers' ability to communicate with patients," said Elaine Mendoza, President and CEO of Sevocity and CMI. "We chose to include Patient Portal Secure Messaging at no extra charge because the functionality directly aligns with our mission to deliver affordable technology that enables secure data exchange and patient communications," concluded Mendoza.
Based in San Antonio, Texas, Sevocity empowers physician practices and health centers to embrace electronic health records (EHRs) by providing an easy-to-use, Internet-based electronic health record system. Because Sevocity EHR is an ASP (application service provider) product that provides secure access to clinical information via the Internet, clinics and health centers avoid the expensive upfront capital expenditure and ongoing maintenance costs associated with client/server offerings.
