Patient Portals are online applications that allow patients to interact and communicate with their healthcare providers, such as physicians and hospitals.
To meet the requirements of Meaningful Use Stage 2, healthcare providers need to more actively engage patients by providing them with the capability to electronically view, download, and transmit relevant information from their EHR system. This could include lab test results, a list of current medications, and hospital discharge instructions.
