Pediatric Alliance Launches Patient Portal
PITTSBURGH, PA (1/15/2012) -- Pediatric Alliance, P.C. announced today that it has launched a new patient portal that is integrated with their EHR (Electronic Health Record) System. The portal is designed to make it easier for patients to manage their healthcare online, and is accessible through Pediatric Alliance’s website (www.pediatricalliance.com). The portal is designed and maintained by NextGen, a leading provider of health information technology solutions.
The new patient portal, NextMD, is available to all patients once they register for the service. It will allow patients to request medication refills, obtain medical record information, and more. “NextMD has helped our medical office evolve into an efficient, modern platform of patient care in order to remain quality oriented, independent, and financially successful,” stated James Troup, CEO. This new portal will also make it easier for the staff to communicate with patients, issue appointment reminders, and share news and announcements.
