NEW FEATURES COMING MAY 2010
NEW ONLINE PATIENT PORTAL IS UP AND RUNNING
GO ONLINE ANYTIME!
SECURE PATIENT PORTAL (log on here)
Foothills Internal Medicine has some exciting news about a new feature we are offering to our patients. We have finalized the implementation of our online self-service patient portal and it is now live. This feature provides convenient communication for our patients anytime, anywhere, via a secure internet portal. Some of the features that are available are:
Pre-registration new patients can fill out all those tedious forms from the comfort of their home; this is also a great benefit for elderly patients who might need a family member to help with this process.
Pre-visit paperwork any changes in health history, insurance coverage, address, etc. can be sent directly to our office to save time and avoid filling out new forms at the office.
Appointment requests requests for non-emergency appointments can be sent online with information about patient symptoms. This will allow our staff to more quickly assess your condition and schedule an appropriate appointment.
Prescription refills patients can request refills on line; with our new electronic prescription system this will speed up the process and patients will be notified when refill is processed.
Medical history patients can provide their own medical history online; these items can be transferred directly to the patient medical chart, ensuring accuracy and more efficient visits.
Lab results Patients lab test results can be sent online.
Questions Patients can send non-urgent questions to a nurse or billing specialist.
On line bill paying is not available yet but is on the way.
We are very excited and pleased that we can offer this new feature for our patients. We feel that it will enhance our communication and the overall care of our patients. Please provide your email address to our office staff at your convenience. You should be receiving an email "invitation" soon. Just click on the link in your invitation to activate your secure patient portal connection to our office online service.
IN ORDER TO SEND YOU AN INVITATION WE MUST HAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS ON FILE.
If you have not received an invitation just call our office at 855-1331, give us your email address and we will send you an invitation to this site. This is a secure password protected HIPAA-compliant system; you can rest assured that your information is protected.
New ..... Ultrasounds on site
Starting in May 2010, Foothills Internal Medicine will be offering Ultrasounds on site. This new service will allow our patients to have their procedures performed right in our exam rooms with no pre-registration or long waits at other facilities. This should ensure a quicker turn around time for results and added convenience for our patients. Please call our office at 855-1331 if you would like to schedule your next Ultrasound at our location.
