A recent study surveyed active portal users to find out how well patients understand the data and test results released to them through portals.
Survey investigates why even portal-savvy patients don’t necessarily take advantage of all that’s available to them electronically.
Involving patients in the management of their health (patient engagement) encourages greater patient participation in care.
On Wednesday, October 19, at AHIMA’s Annual Convention, the session “Patient Engagement: Teaching Patients to Fish,” presented by Michelle Basco, RHIA, will explore how to engage organization’s patients and families in their health through patient portals, as well as the unique way Children’s Health System of Texas has approached patient engagement.
AHIMA just released its Patient Portal Toolkit, a follow up to the 2015 Practice Brief, “The Implementation and Management of Patient Portals.”
