Patient Engagement Portal


Patient Engagement Portal

Healthcare organizations have a lot of incentives to adopt technology, software applications and online portals as a way of better serving patients and their communities. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) even offers financial incentives to clinics, hospitals, care networks, and healthcare professionals relating to the adoption of EHR software (Electronic Health Records).

The goal is to promote "Better Care", "Smarter Spending" and ultimately "Healthier People". To measure that, the CMS has established objectives and clinical quality measures (CQMs) which they refer to as "Meaningful Use". Those objectives and measures have been an evolving process and identified as Meaningful Use Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3. Each subsequent stage is a variation of the one before.

In order to meet these measures, hospitals and healthcare networks must report on a set of core metrics to demonstrate their compliance with the requirements as established within the stage.

The Importance of Patient Engagement Portals

Many of the Meaningful Use measures relate to the patient and both collecting and providing patient data.  Healthcare providers face a challenge in that much of the information required is stored in multiple hospital systems, each with its own security and user interface. This creates a barrier for patients and their families and makes it difficult for them to navigate the different systems and online presences within a single organization.

To solve this problem the development team at Dunn Solutions designed a Patient Engagement Portal based on a proven open source enterprise Java platform.  Our healthcare portal drives and builds patient engagement by providing a seamless, branded, and customized experience for patients on both traditional desktop and mobile devices.  Leveraging the power of our Patient Engagement Tools can help hospitals meet measures relating to the Meaningful Use stages.

Your Patient Portal System Can Include:

  • Single Sign On (SSO) to multiple EHR and Lab Systems
  • eVisit / remote telemedicine integration with online payment
  • Core Interaction Features
    • View test results from multiple lab systems in a single view
    • Schedule appointments through a unified calendar
