NOSH ChartingSystem features a Patient Portal, as a standard feature. Essentially, the patient has access to the NOSH ChartingSystem but has significantly different permissions and a different dashboard than other types of users. So what type of features does the Patient Portal offer for patients?
First, patients have electronic access to their medical records. This includes test results, encounters and other pertinent documents.
Second, there is intra-office messaging and direct messaging to the medical provider that is secure and HIPAA compliant.
Third, there is an online scheduling system that is nearly identical to the provider schedule. The only difference is that other patient appointments are blocked out and there are no patient identifiers (obviously for HIPAA compliance). NOSH ChartingSystem also has, built-in, the ability to remind patients via e-mail or SMS (text messaging) about their upcoming appointment 48 hours prior.
