Abstract

Patient portals are not new to healthcare. Their inclusion in the Meaningful Use (MU) program has served to increase the number of providers offering them to their patients, however. There is still much to be learned about the best way to engage patients in the use of portals to improve patients’ health and well-being while maximizing the resources offered by the provider. This seminar will explore the use of a patient portal, success metrics in efforts to engage patients, and the future of patient portals.
