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. Patients are using the Internet to research medical conditions, therefore the case for implementing a specialty specific online portal with informative resources is strong.
The IMS’ online healthcare ophthalmology patient portal is an integrated solution that uses software to bring healthcare professionals and patients together. Our online portal allows patients to access personal health records at any time, through an Internet-enabled device. Through the ophthalmology portal, patients are able to update personal information at their convenience and complete necessary health forms in advance of visiting their doctor. This not only helps reduce patient waiting times, but it also allows staff to make better use of their time.

Patient Intake Forms: Queues and long waiting times can be difficult for patients, therefore allowing patients to fill out forms prior to their appointment is beneficial to patients and staff alike. With our online ophthalmology portal, patients are able to take care of their own paperwork before coming to your office. This not only lightens the staff workload, but it helps to reduce errors caused manual data entry too.
Appointment Requests: Patients value the freedom to independently book appointments online, rather than having to find the time to make a phone call to the office. Through our online ophthalmology portal, patients may request appointments quickly and easily. This saves time for patients and for your staff.
Medication Refill Requests: Instead of patients having to phone the office for prescription refills, and staff calling the refill into the pharmacy, requests for medication refills can be submitted online through the office’s ophthalmology portal. Submitting refill requests this way is convenient for both patients and staff.
Referral Requests: In order for insurance companies to cover specialist services, patients can be required to obtain a referral from their primary care physician. 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.
Online Bill Pay: Reduce your staff workload and speed up patient payments through our online bill pay feature. Patients can view their statements, make payments, and even contact you through the secure messaging system should they have questions about their ophthalmology bill.
