HIMSS17 TOOK PLACE IN ORLANDO, FL
February 19-23, 2017
Most clinicians think patient portals are best used to improve patient satisfaction and clinical results, but portals can also be effective in improving the bottom line through faster, better collections. While spurred on by Meaningful Use, the real potential of patient portals goes far beyond government mandates: affecting reimbursements, patient loyalty and even health outcomes. Paul Shenenberger, chief information officer of Summit Medical Group, the largest and oldest physician-owned multispecialty practice in New Jersey, and Dr. Todd Rothenhaus, chief medical officer of athenahealth, the provider of the nation’s only single-instance clinical information network, will discuss the business case for portal adoption by demonstrating significant improvements in revenue, as well as the benefits of using portals to empower patients, increase satisfaction and boost healthcare outcomes.
