What Patients Will See
While doctors will be dealing with information from dozens—or even hundreds—of patients, a patient is limited to their own ePHI data. But because it’s their own health, any data that arrives is extremely important to them.
On an individual basis, patients will have access to nearly all the information that the doctor will have (though doctors can choose to review results before making them available to a patient). Depending on the choices made during portal integration with your medical website, patients can use HIPAA telemedicine apps to:
- Access information – Review files, looks at device readings, see labs
- Schedule Appointments – Interact with the doctor’s scheduling software to make, change, or cancel appointments
- Enter Information – Fill out forms, supply insurance information
- Contact Physicians – Send encrypted messages within the portal to healthcare providers
