Cerner Patient Portal
The Patient Portal, from Cerner Corp., helps provider organizations improve communication and enhance patient care. This system includes several patient-access services designed to improve communication with patients and ease administrative processes. Using Patient Portal, providers can send appointment reminders, provide new patient registration forms, share lab results and EMR data, conduct e-visits, and send attachments such as documents or images.
Patients can also use the Patient Portal to fill prescriptions; update demographic information; request, reschedule, or cancel appointments or directly book appointments within Cerner Millennium Appointment Book; and view their medical fees online and quickly make a payment. They can also view their clinical information from their Cerner Millennium EMR and educational material.
