  • Events
  • ANYTHING you want to tell your patient community
This type of patient communication is supportive of Meaningful Use and Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) initiatives.
Links to your Patient Portal Your Patient Portal is only effective if patients use it.
Your Patient Portal + Your Patient Communicator eNewsletter = the Best Solution for Patient Portal Utilization.
