The role of the PHR in healthcare continues to evolve. NoMoreClipboard now has an offering for physician groups with a portal to allow additional interaction between doctors and patients. As with any PHR the control is in the hands of the patient to share information. With the new system, appointments, refills and more can be accessed and exchanged. With a branded portal, the PHR can be offered directly to patients from a physician website and information can be integrated with an EHR/EMR. NoMoreClipboard also integrates with HeatlhVault and Google Health for additional portability and sharing. BD
Branded Portal Includes Robust PHR and Secure Messaging Functionality
Fort Wayne, Ind. – January 18, 2010 – As physician practices move to satisfy patient and family engagement meaningful use criteria and more consumers use the Internet to manage family health and wellness, NoMoreClipboard.com is offering physicians a new patient portal designed to improve both the patient experience and physician office productivity. From the portal, patients can create a personal health record account, share demographic and clinical information, and send and receive secure messages relating to appointments, medication refills, billing questions and clinical questions.
“We carefully balance the needs of consumers and clinicians,” said Dr. William Cast, NoMoreClipboard chief executive officer. “We help consumers compile, manage and share health information, and we integrate that information into existing practice workflow. The new NMC-MD portal gives physician practices a practical and affordable way to interact electronically with their patients.”
Specific benefits of the new portal include:
- Meeting patient-centered meaningful use criteria. The NMC-MD portal was designed to help physicians meet ARRA meaningful use criteria, including providing patients with electronic copies of health information, timely access to health information and clinical summaries after each patient encounter.
- Streamlining administrative tasks by collecting patient information prior to an appointment, making the check-in process more efficient, and reducing phone call volume for appointment requests, prescription refill requests and routine patient questions.
- Integrating with practice workflow. For paper based practices, PHR data can be delivered to an NMC-MD administrative portal on existing practice-specific registration forms, giving the practice a more legible, accurate and complete view of patient health information. For practices with an EHR, the NMC-MD portal can deliver electronic patient information in a secure, interoperable format.
- Building brand loyalty. The NMC-MD patient portal can retain the same visual identity as the existing practice website, ensuring a smooth patient experience that builds brand recognition and value.
“Our practice is encouraging patients to create a PHR account on our NMC-MD patient portal,” said Dr. Michael Mirro, cardiologist and chair of the IT committee at the American College of Cardiology. “As a result, we are improving communication and coordination of care, and getting our patients more engaged in managing their cardiovascular health.”
