Dermatology Patient Portal

Dermatology Patient Portal

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

With the EHR Incentive Program encouraging patient engagement and the healthcare industry’s drive toward patient-centered care, the need for online dermatology patient portal software is growing. Patients are increasingly turning to Internet resources for medical information, pushing many to implement a specialty specific online portal.

1st Providers Choice’s online healthcare dermatology patient portal is a fully integrated online solution that helps increase communication between healthcare professionals and their patients. Our online portal allows patients to access their personal health records at any time, through an Internet-connected device. Through the dermatology portal, patients can update personal information and complete the required health forms before visiting their doctor. This saves your staff time by having patient information in advance, rather than having to make patients fill out forms at the clinic.

Online Healthcare Dermatology Patient Portal Features:

  • Secure, password-protected access
  • Online patient registration
  • Ability to view and request appointments
  • Prescription refill request
  • Visit summaries & medication history
  • Online bill pay
  • Dermatology patient education resources
  • Secure patient messaging system

Healthcare Dermatology Patient Portal Benefits:

  • Full integration with EMR/PM systems
  • Reduces clerical and administrative work
  • Increases dermatology patient engagement and satisfaction
  • Eliminates data entry errors
  • Improves productivity and office management
  • Increases collections
  • Streamlines patient-physician communication
  • Improves safety and compliance

Patient Intake Forms: Avoid the long waits that come with patients filling out intake and registration forms at check-in and front desk staff having to then enter the information into the EMR. With our online healthcare dermatology portal, patients can fill out the paperwork prior to their appointment. This not only lightens staff workload through reduced data input, but also reduces the likelihood of data entry errors.

Appointment Requests: Patients prefer having self-service options such as the ability to book appointments online, so that they don’t need to take the time to make a phone call. Through our online dermatology portal, patients can request appointments at their own convenience. This saves time for the patient and for your employees preventing them from having to take phone calls and manually search for appointment slots.

Medication Refill Requests: Rather than patients having to call your office for prescription refills and employees then having to call the refill into the patient’s pharmacy, requests for medication refills can be submitted through your practice’s online dermatology patient portal. Submitting refill requests this way simplifies the medication refill process and is more convenient for patients and staff.

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

Online Bill Pay: Receive money faster and reduce staff workload through our online bill pay feature. Patients can view dermatology statements, make payments, and contact you through the secure messaging system should they have questions about their dermatology bill.
