The Patient Portal section of the NextGen Healthcare website allows patients to log in directly and access health care information securely, according to NextGen. Patients may register online for new accounts and access information imported by their medical providers, according to MMIC Health IT.
The NextGen Patient Portal allows practices to manage patient information and make it easily accessible for patients with Internet access, as MMIC Health IT states. This system gives patients the ability to read electronic health records, view and edit prescription requests, and verify and pay their medical bills online. Patients may complete intake interviews through the system before their appointments, with the information sent directly to their physicians. Mobile device and tablet access is also available, reports NextGen Healthcare. Patients can send secure messages to their physicians and update their personal health records as well.
NextGen's patient portal also allows physicians to track disease management plans and integrate patient data with other providers, hospitals and health care facilities, as well as with other NextGen products, claims MMIC Health IT. Physicians may import patient information directly to the NextGen electronic medical record without forwarding the information for other staff to enter by hand. Appointment reminders and scheduling features assist with practice management and update in real time.
