Medical practise management on the web

Medical practise management on the web: "Another area where practice management vendors are boosting functionality is the Internet. Web portals can help improve communication between patients and physician offices and cut down on all those phone calls staff handle on a daily basis. In April, The Family Doctors in Shreveport, La., enhanced its Web site with portal software from Misys Healthcare Systems, Raleigh, N.C. The 11-physician practice's previous site was rather basic, offering such static information as driving directions, physician bios and a list of insurance plans the group accepted. The new Web site, built on the vendor's PatientLink portal software, offers educational videos on demand as well as online appointment scheduling and registration. The portal also enables patients to print, complete and fax authorization forms for the release of their medical records, saving a trip to the office. Online payment is an additional function the practice expects to add this year, says Lisa Britt, practice administrator."
