A true patient portal saves a minimum of 30% of the Front Desk clerical time and an estimated 25% of the doctor’s administrative efforts!
This represents a phenomenal savings in payroll expenses and shifts tasks that are typically carried out by the Front Desk staff to the patients themselves.
Their own history
Their insurance information
Their general information

The patients also monitor who in your office staff will see their information. This has several benefits as you:
Do not need to initiate contact with a lawyer
Do not need to copy the information into a large patient folder
Do not need to monitor release authorizations
These tasks are now handled by the patient!
The patient portal monitors patient visits by:
Sending appointment reminders
Automatically changing the status of appointments
The patient portal supplies the patient with an online "Home Exercise Program" (HEP) for rehab therapy, home rehabilitation exercise and at the gym in three different methods:
In printed format, animated image format and full video format
The patient is able to select exercises and build their own programs from the same database as the doctor
The doctor has the ability to easily monitor a patient's progress online.
This provides for complete monitoring of high level athletes
The homework function of the patient portal provides patients with a nutritional supplement prescription including concise dosage direction
True patient portals due to HIPAA requirements can operate only on a web-based system.
At DocuRehab, the leader for EMR for the hands-on professional, we have integrated both patient and user portals to help our users save money, resources and time.
