Patient Portal

A patient portal is a secure, web-based tool that allows patients to interact with their healthcare providers. It usually includes information about appointments, lab results, medications, and medical history. This allows patients to see the status of their own care and enables them to schedule appointments, refill prescriptions, and communicate with their doctors online. 

The benefits to patients include greater control over their own care and more convenient access to their health information. The benefits to health care providers include less paperwork and fewer errors in communication between them and their patients.
