Building a better patient portal
Think these are complaints from providers? Think again—they're from patients. It's easy to forget there are two sides of the EHR: one for providers, one for patients.
Meaningful use dollars—$35 billion through May 2016—were supposed to result in EHRs that make data move not only among providers but also between providers and patients. But the stodgy software continues to pose problems.
And while providers have to use that software to meet federal requirements, patients don't. As of 2017, just 28% of patients accessed their health records online in the previous year, according to the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology.
