Through this agreement, millions of patients of AMS clients will now be able to easily communicate with their provider and complete key tasks online.
With the Intuit Health Patient Portal, the nation’s leader in patient-to-provider communication solutions, patients can pre-register, request appointments, refill prescriptions, understand and pay bills, complete medical forms, receive lab results and clinical summaries, conduct virtual office visits, and exchange messages for related care and administrative issues using a secure, online solution, anytime from anywhere. Improving patient communications, providing better accessibility, and offering tools to increase data accuracy will give staff more time to care for patients at the time of their visit.

Eighty-four percent said they would complete their medical forms online before their doctor’s appointment if they had that option.
