Connect with your patients online through a secure, EMR-integrated pulmonology patient portal.
With the EHR Incentive Program encouraging healthcare engagement for patients and the industry’s push toward patient-centered care, the requirement for online pulmonology patient portal software is growing. Patients are increasingly turning to Internet resources in order to research medical information online, making a strong case for implementing a specialty specific online portal.
The IMS’ healthcare pulmonology patient portal is a fully integrated solution that has online systems that facilitate relations between healthcare professionals and patients. Our online portal allows patients to access personal health information at their convenience, through Internet-connected devices. Through the online pulmonology portal, patients can update personal information and complete online health forms before visiting their doctor. This helps reduce staff inputting workload and allows the patient to quickly check in to their appointment without spending time filling in forms at the doctor’s office.

Patient Intake Forms: The pulmonology patient portal helps to avoid long wait times while patients fill out intake and registration forms at check-in and front desk staff enter data into the EMR. With our online healthcare pulmonology portal, patients are able to fill out the paperwork prior to their arrival at the doctor’s office. Not only does this lighten staff workload through reducing the manual input of patient forms, but it also reduces the likelihood of data errors by manual staff data entry.
Appointment Requests: Patients prefer having self-service options such as an online appointment booking system, rather than having to find the time to make a phone call to the doctor’s office. Through our pulmonology portal, patients can request appointments at a time that suits them. This saves time for the patient and for your employees through having to take phone calls and search for available appointments.
Medication Refill Requests: Avoid patients having to call or visit the office for prescription refills and employees calling the refill into the patient’s pharmacy, by submitting medication refills requests through the online pulmonology portal. Submitting refill requests this way simplifies the system, reducing the administration process for patients and staff.
Referral Requests: Insurance companies often require a doctor referral in order to cover certain specialist services. Our online healthcare pulmonology portal has a referral request feature, allowing patients to bypass a visit or phone call to the doctor’s office by requesting an online referral authorization. If the doctor requires a visit prior to the referral being authorized, the patient can easily be contacted through the system to organize an appointment. Otherwise, the doctor can directly authorize the referral through the pulmonology patient portal or EMR and send it to the patient electronically.
Online Bill Pay: Get paid quickly and reduce staff workload through our integrated online bill pay feature. Patients can view pulmonology statements, make payments online, and contact you through the secure messaging system should they have questions about their pulmonology bill.
