A patient portal or PHR (Personal Health Record) is a module available either stand-alone or integrated with an EMR which provides personal medical record access to patients and allows for more focused health information to be shared with them.
A PHR will allow you to share medical reports, prescriptions and consultation notes with your patients seamlessly. It will also help you engage patients directly and provide them with information most required for their health condition. It also allows you to provide updates and offer about your clinic. Advanced PHRs also allow users to set appointments directly online.
