Hesitant About Building a Patient Portal? Think About It Like This…

Hesitant about building a patient portal? Think about it like this…There’s no question patient portals are a hot topic right now. Not only are patients demanding more interaction with their healthcare providers, recent reform changes have left many organizations considering moving down the portal path sooner than expected.

What’s the biggest obstacle they face? It’s overwhelming. And expensive.

Or at least that’s the perception.

This is the topic Geonetric’s Ben Dillon presents in a recent Ask the Expert column for eHealth Strategy & Trends. Ben tackles the question “How Do I Start a Patient Portal without Breaking the Bank?” and discusses the benefits of creating a portal that isn’t tied to back-end systems as a first step for many organizations. Ben interviews industry thought leaders, including Private Health News’s Dan Ansel and TransforMed’s Terry McGeeny, and showcases Geonetric’s portal work at Genesis Health System.
