Connect with your patients online through a secure, EMR-integrated rheumatology patient portal.
With the industry’s recent push towards patient-centered care, alongside the EHR Incentive Program encouraging doctors to engage with patients more, the need for having online rheumatology patient portal software is increasing. Additionally, patients are often turning to Internet resources to carry out their own research, making the case for implementing a specialty specific online portal strong.
The IMS’ online healthcare rheumatology patient portal is a fully integrated solution that facilitates the relationship between healthcare professionals and patients. Our online portal allows patients to access their personal health records anywhere, at a time convenient to them, through a device that is connected to the Internet. Through the online rheumatology portal, patients may update their personal information and complete integrated health forms prior to visiting their doctor. This helps to reduce office waiting times, allowing both staff and patients to make better use of their time.

Patient Intake Forms: With patients entering data prior to entering the office, you can avoid long wait times at check-in whilst patients fill out lengthy registration forms and front desk staff having to enter the data into the EMR. With our online healthcare rheumatology portal, patients are able to take care of their own paperwork before they come to the office. This not only helps to alleviate staff workload, but it also helps to reduce manual data entry errors which often occur.
Appointment Requests: Patients value the ease of online self-service features that eliminates the requirement for them to have to make a phone call. Through the online rheumatology portal, patients use a simple booking system to request appointments at their own convenience. This saves time for the patient and for staff who need to spend less time on the phone for booking patient appointments.
Medication Refill Requests: Rather than patients calling the office for prescription refills and employees then calling the refill into the patient’s pharmacy, requests for medication refills can be submitted directly through the online rheumatology portal. This quick and simple process is convenient for patients and allows doctors and staff to reduce the amount of administrative tasks.
Referral Requests: In order for insurance companies to cover specialist services, patients often need to collect referrals from doctors. Our online healthcare rheumatology portal has a feature that allows patients to bypass doctor’s office visits or phone calls by requesting online referral authorizations. If a visit is required, the patient can be contacted for an appointment, otherwise, doctors can authorize referrals through the rheumatology patient portal or EMR and send it to patients electronically.
Online Bill Pay: Reduce staff workload and get paid faster through our online bill pay feature. Patients are able to view their statements, make payments, and even contact you through the secure messaging system should they have questions about their rheumatology bill.
