Description: Here the article below is a demo showing us how we can configure our off-site patient portal which is provided by CH healthcare com.
This is a demo of how you can configure your off-site patient portal which is provided by CH healthcare com, you login to your version of open EMR with an administrator password, go to administration.
First, we want to check whether the ACL has been said so gory, the patient portal is included, once you have done that, you go to Global’s and you need to enable the off-site patient, there is a username and password which you have to input, but you will have to do that after one more step, so you have enabled the off-site patient portal and you save it.
A portal activity menu item has shown on your left screen, here is where you register your practice name, so you can select whatever practice it is, this is the path that the portal will seek to collect data from your local site.
It’s usually the system, you don’t have to do anything,here is where you will put a unique identification for any of your patients to log into your patient portal, so in this case, since it is zs demo opening amar, I’m just going to put the username.
The password has one character like asterisks or hash or something numerals and letters now, once I have done all this and I submitted, it will take it to another place where it asks you to register your practice, so this means that an email has been sent to your email address which would have been a legitimate email address.
An authentication password is sent to me, so you are registered, what you have to do, you will get another email saying this is how it has been registered and all your details will be there now, you go back to administration Global’s and you remember your username and password that you used to register with the portal.
When you go back to portal activity, you are having the provider side access of the portal now, under settings, you can set all the access you want, it’s very granular, you can go in there and make sure what you want your patients to access in the patient portal, so the patient’s profile is a standard item, but you can control whether the patient can make appointments, see the medical records, see the accounts and have a mailbox whereby, they can send you encrypted males and you can send them encrypted males.
In this case, I’m enabling every one of them then, there are certain other questions that you need to answer, because it’s very important that some of the practices may not want the patient to directly update their databases, so if there is a new registration, do you want them to update the database directly.
If you don’t want to go back and review all the requests every day, if you have hundreds of patients registering, you might want to skip that, but essentially, people will say no because they want to review each and every one of them, if there are existing patients and they are making some changes to their profile, do you want it to directly update the database, so there are a few more features and forms that you can upload so that the patients can fill up the forms even before they come to the office.
They can sign the forms online, it’s usually a PDF form, this question relates to that with regard to mail, do you want patients to be able to mail you? Sometimes, some practices may not want the patients to mail you directly, so you can enable that the payment and the IVR system are currently restricted.
Let’s go to the appointments part, so do you want appointment requests or changes to automatically update the database? People can seek appointment slots, it need not necessarily go into your database unless you prove it, you can select which are the facilities that you want people to have appointments for.
If you don’t see patients in several facilities, you can select which facilities you want to take appointments for some doctors, don’t show their available appointments, because they don’t want people to see whether they are busy or not, so they will leave it open.
In this case, I am going to do that, if you select, you can give them two or three alternative options, so they can say I want to see the doctor on Thursday at ten o’clock or Friday at three o’clock.
If you have PDF forms, you need to have the patience fill up before they come, you can upload the form from here and you can see where they have to sign it, all those things in a more detailed way, you can check the connection whether the portal will be able to connect with you and make sure anybody can access your sister, otherwise you are set to have your patients access the patient boat.
