Presenter:
Dara Barrera, Manager, Practice Management and Health Information Technology, MSMS

Duration:

You will have better success meeting meaningful use requirements for Stage 2 if you integrate a patient portal effectively in your practice operations. In addition, stage 3 requirements may require that you use a patient portal to attest successfully.
 
Just making a portal available to patients will not ensure that they will use it. The portal must be engaging and user-friendly, and must support patient-centered outcomes. The portal also must be integrated into clinical encounters so the care team uses it to convey information, communicate with patients, and support self-care and decision-making as indicated.
