A web-based platform that provides an environment for patients to learn about their condition and record their medical history is an online patient portal. Portals can be developed in numerous ways and can include a variety of tools that help individuals afflicted with a condition or disease better manage their care through interactive devices like an appointment scheduler and reminder, prescription refill request, “Ask the Doctor” tool, calendar, and RSS feed. The purpose of a web-based interactive patient portal is to improve the sharing and communication of information pertaining to personal health between the patient and those individuals involved with their care.
The sensitive nature of patient information demands acute attention to security to ensure personal healthcare data remains private and protected. DDA Medical fulfills this requirement by following HIPAA protocol and integrating robust security measures that keep stored patient data isolated from outside intruders. With an in-house programming staff and team of talented graphic designers, DDA Medical routinely surpasses expectations with well-designed patient portals that are intuitive, organized, and easy-to-use. As our specialty rests in custom programmed solutions, no request will go unanswered, from online medical journals and therapy tracking tools to interactive appointment schedulers and data extraction and sharing options.
