Connect with your patients online through a secure, EMR-integrated sleep medicine patient portal.
A focus on patient-centered care and the EHR Incentive Program encouraging patient engagement has led to an increased need for online sleep medicine patient portal software within the healthcare industry. Patients are turning to Internet resources to research medical information, therefore the case for implementing a specialty specific online portal is compelling.
The IMS’ online healthcare sleep medicine patient portal is a completely integrated software solution that brings together healthcare professionals and patients. Our online portal gives access to patients in order to edit their personal health records from anywhere, through an Internet-connected device. Through the sleep medicine portal, patients are able to update their personal information and complete health forms before visiting their doctor. This helps to reduce patient wait times, and allows staff and doctors to make better use of their time.

Patient Intake Forms: Through allowing patients access to forms prior to their appointments, you can avoid long waiting times at check-in while patients fill out intake and registration forms, followed by front desk staff entering the data into the EMR. With our online healthcare sleep medicine portal, patients fill out paperwork before coming to your office. This not only lessens staff workload, but it helps to reduce manual data entry errors.
Appointment Requests: Patients are appreciative of having the facility to book online appointments, which don’t require a phone call to your office. Through our online sleep medicine portal, patients can request appointments quickly and easily. This saves time for patients and for your staff receiving online, as opposed to telephone, appointment requests.
Medication Refill Requests: Patients are able to submit requests for medication refills online through your office’s sleep medicine portal. This avoids the need for patients to have to call the office for prescription refills, and staff having to call the refill into the patient’s pharmacy. Submitting online refill requests speeds up the process and is more convenient for both patients and staff.
Referral Requests: Insurance companies covering specialist services often require patients to obtain a referral from their primary care physician. Our sleep medicine portal has a referral request feature within the system, that allows patients to directly request referral authorizations online. If the physician would like a patient visit the patient can be contacted for an appointment. If a visit isn’t necessary however, the doctor is able to authorize the referral through the sleep medicine patient portal or EMR.
Online Bill Pay: Speed up payments and reduce your staff workload 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 sleep medicine bill.
