Connect with your patients online through a secure, EMR-integrated internal medicine patient portal.
With a shift towards patient-centered care, and the EHR Incentive Program encouraging doctors to focus on engaging more with patients, the need for online internal medicine patient portal software within the healthcare industry is strong. Patients are using the Internet more and more for medical research, therefore the case for implementing a specialty specific online portal is increasing.
The IMS’ healthcare internal medicine patient portal provides an integrated software solution that uses an online portal system to help make the relationship between healthcare professionals and patients easier. Our online portal allows patients to access personal health records whenever they like, through any Internet-enabled device. The internal medicine portal allows patients to update their personal information when necessary and to complete online health forms in advance, before visiting their doctor. This helps reduce patient wait times in the office, and allows staff to be less burdened with administrative tasks.

Patient Intake Forms: Queues and long wait times can be lessened by using systems in which patients fill out forms prior to their appointment. With our online healthcare internal medicine portal, patients can manage their own registration forms and paperwork before coming to your office. This lightens the staff workload and also helps to reduce errors caused by manual data entry.
Appointment Requests: Patients appreciate having a resource in which they can book online appointments at their convenience, rather than having to call through to the doctor’s office and speak to a staff member. Through our online internal medicine portal, patients are simply able to request appointments, saving time for them and your staff.
Medication Refill Requests: Rather than requiring patients to phone the office for prescription refills, and staff having to call the refill into the pharmacy, patient requests for medication refills can be submitted through our internal medicine patient portal. Submitting refill requests online simplifies the process, and is convenient for both patients and your staff.
Referral Requests: Insurance companies that cover specialist services often need patients to obtain a referral from their doctor. Our online healthcare internal medicine portal allows patients to directly request referral authorizations. If the physician needs the patient to make an appointment, they can request that the patient takes this action. Otherwise, the doctor is able to instantly authorize the referral through the internal medicine patient portal or EMR.
Online Bill Pay: Reduce your staff workload and speed up payments from patients through our integrated online bill pay feature. Patients can easily view their statements, make payments through the system, and contact the office through the secure messaging system should they have questions about their internal medicine bill.
