Ambulatory Surgery Patient Portal

Ambulatory Surgery Patient Portal

Connect with your patients online through a secure, EMR-integrated ambulatory surgery patient portal.

With the healthcare industry’s push toward more patient-centered care and the EHR Incentive Program encouraging patient engagement, the need for online ambulatory surgery patient portal software is growing. Furthermore, patients are increasingly turning to the Internet for medical information, making the case for implementing a specialty specific online portal is strong.

IMS’ online healthcare ambulatory surgery patient portal is a completely integrated solution that brings healthcare professionals and patients together. Our online portal allows patients to access their personal health record from anywhere, through any Internet-connected device. Through the ambulatory surgery portal, patients can update their personal information and complete necessary health forms before visiting the doctor. This not only helps reduce waiting times for patients, but it allows staff to make better use of their time.

With our online healthcare ambulatory surgery portal, patients can take care of paperwork before coming to your office. This not only lightens staff workload but reduces data entry errors as well.

Appointment Requests: Patients appreciate online self-service options that don’t require them to take the time to make a phone call. Through our online ambulatory surgery portal, patients can request appointments quickly, easily, and at their own convenience. This saves time for the patient and for your employees too.

Medication Refill Requests: Instead of patients having to call your office for prescription refills and then employees having to call the refill into the patient’s pharmacy, requests for medication refills can be submitted through your practice’s online ambulatory surgery portal. Submitting refill requests this way is more convenient for patients and allows doctors and staff to use their time more productively.

Referral Requests: In order for insurance companies to cover specialist services, it is often necessary for patients to obtain a referral from their primary care physician. Our online healthcare ambulatory surgery portal has a referral request feature that allows patients to bypass unnecessary doctor’s office visits and phone calls by requesting referral authorizations online. If the physician feels a visit is necessary, the patient may be contacted for an appointment. Otherwise, the doctor can authorize the referral through the ambulatory surgery patient portal or EMR and send it to the patient electronically.
