Information Systems, Data Management, Patient Portal

Definition : Data management information systems designed to give patients access to their personal information, manage their healthcare, and communicate with the healthcare staff over the Internet. These systems typically consist of a combination of hardware and software. The hardware typically includes dedicated network servers and computers; the software consists of a dedicated software package that provides laboratory reports, diagnostics, account statements, and full medical records. Patient portal data management systems allow safe and secure communication between patients and doctors using a simple web interface. This allows patient access to laboratory reports, diagnostics, account statements, and full medical records at any time. Appointments, prescription refills, and referrals can be requested by the patient without calling the office and physicians can set up automatic reminders for patient appointments and health maintenance requirements, greatly reducing the need for patient calls. Patient portal systems may function as stand-alone systems or may be integrated in a hospital-wide data management information system network.
