The Allscripts Patient Portal, from Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, is powered by Intuit Health. In partnership with Allscripts, Intuit Health provides an online CCR/CCD-compliant tool that allows patients to easily view, update, correct, and share their health data. The tool's sharing capabilities make it useful for patients with chronic conditions, and it addresses Meaningful Use qualifications. Like many of the other products mentioned, this portal gives patients access to personal health information, helping patients view, update, manage, and share their information. As a result, it also reduces phone calls and paperwork requests, Allscripts says.
