eClinicalWorks Patient Portal
The eClinicalWorks Portal allows patients to communicate with their doctors and access important information over the Internet. A physicians' practice can, for example, send patients reminders, statements, patient education materials, and lab results electronically. Among the features the portal offers patients are the ability to enter medical history online, send messages to doctors' offices, complete new patient registrations, conduct Web consults, refill prescriptions, check lab results, schedule appointments, view account statements, and obtain patient educational materials.
With eClinicalWorks Patient Portal, providers can securely communicate with patients, view patient history, post lab and imaging results to the portal, obtain referral requests, and send educational materials directly to the patient.
