"So nice to have my lab results sent directly to the computer with Amazing Charts."

Interfaces to Patient Portals

Patient Portals are online applications that allow patients to interact and communicate with their clinicians, such as physicians and hospitals.

Meeting the Requirements of Meaningful Use Stage 2

To meet the requirements of Meaningful Use Stage 2, clinicians 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.

For physicians and other clinicians participating in meaningful use, patient engagement for Meaningful Use Stage 2 also includes bi-directional, secure email with patients.

A Patient Portal is the only practical way to meet these MU Stage 2 requirements.
