7 Portals Powering Patient Engagement
January 29, 2013 09:58 AM Meaningful Use has put new strains on providers in terms of patient engagement, but these portals help ease the burden, says recent KLAS report.
According to the report, Jardogs' FollowMyHealth system is the most-used best-of-breed portal in the study. The vendor is EMR-agnostic; however, most clients are Allscripts sites. Jardogs also claims to be "provider-agnostic form a patient point of view, as the system can function as a PHR and combine data from unrelated providers." Respondents said the vendor has proactive service and support as well as easy implementations. There are concerns regarding the social networking-based login, though, especially regarding privacy and accessibility for older patients.
