Opthalmology Patient Portal

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

The healthcare industry is moving towards patient-centered care, and with the EHR Incentive Program encouraging patient engagement, the need for online ophthalmology patient portal software is growing.

Our online portal allows patients to access personal health records at any time, through an Internet-enabled device.

This not only lightens the staff workload, but it helps to reduce errors caused by manual data entry too.

Through our online ophthalmology portal, patients may request appointments quickly and easily. This saves time for patients and for your staff.

Submitting refill requests this way is convenient for both patients and staff.

Our online healthcare ophthalmology portal has a referral request feature that allows patients to directly request referral authorizations at their convenience. If the physician feels that a patient visit is necessary, the patient is able to be contacted for an appointment. Otherwise, the doctor is able to authorize the referral through the ophthalmology patient portal or EMR.
