Patient Portal Puts Patients at Forefront
MCHC News Release
The Molokai Community Health Center (MCHC), in an on-going effort to provide patient-driven care, has spent the past year investing in the development and implementation of the best technological tools to better service our patients.
Initially, our Electronic Medical Records (EMR) were introduced to provide a quick and efficient way for our providers to access patient information as well coordinate services with other Providers on behalf of the patient.
With this same focus in mind — to provide quality care based on quality information — MCHC would like to announce the newly developed Patient Portal designed for the patient’s needs first.
This online, web-based Patient Portal will be provided to all MCHC patients, at no additional cost, with the goal of providing our patients direct access to all of their very own health information, originally only provided by Providers through a lengthy process.
There are many advantages to this system that provide convenience to patients. The Patient Portal offers customized patient care. MCHC patients are provided their very own account information (login/password) for security purposes that will include all information relating to their healthcare. Since the Portal is managed online, patients are able to access their accounts from any computer at any time of their choosing. All health records related to the patient are also available to the patient.
It provides direct communication to your provider — the Portal allows you, the patient, to directly contact your provider through email format. You can schedule your appointments through your Portal account without ever picking up the phone. All paperwork needed by your provider will be also available on your account to be completed in the comfort of your own home.
Our hope is that this will be a resource to our patients to have the ability to access and manage their own healthcare at their own convenience. We encourage you to ask about it at your next visit or call for more information, 553-5038.
