The Moffitt patient portal allows cancer patients to schedule and view appointment times, request appointment changes, locate appointment instructions and complete questionnaires before appointments, states Moffitt Cancer Center. Patients are able to view personal health information and request updates, request prescription renewals, and see certain lab results and clinical notes.
Through the portal, patients submit requests for their full records, according to MCC. The portal provides a link to Moffitt's Total Cancer Care study for participating patients. It also give patients access to information about their specific diseases, including support groups and clinical trials, according to MCC. These resources come from MCC, government agencies and other trusted organizations.
