What is a Patient Portal and How Does it Help Medical Practices?

Following the introduction of electronic medical records (EMR) and electronic health records (EHR), patient portals were developed to improve the way in which patients and healthcare providers interact.

Few practices decide that they need to buy an EMR overnight. Usually, the process begins when a growing number of clinicians begin to feel that the EMR they have in place isn’t cutting it, either because it doesn’t work well or doesn’t meet the emerging needs of the business.
