Patient Portal lets patients and doctors/hospitals communicate
easily, safely, and securely over the Internet.
The portal is a time saver for patients as well as
doctors/hospitals. Patients today are encouraged to
be responsible for their healthcare, and this has been
facilitated by the introduction of new HIPAA and other
patient privacy laws. With the help of a portal, patients
are enabled to perform a number of tasks either prior
