Example of a Patient Portal

Patient Portal

The patient portal brings together information from all healthcare providers in a useful way so that patients and their families are empowered to increase their understanding of and confidence in the healthcare system. The end result is that lab information gets used efficiently, cost-effectively, and for the benefit of patients’ health.
