“Getting patients more engaged in their health care is a proven method to improve outcomes and care coordination, and for that reason it is one of the six National Quality Strategy priorities, and a primary goal for CMS.”

Patient Electronic Access
The Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs encourage patient involvement in their health care. Online access to health information allows patients to make informed decisions about care and to share their most recent clinical information with other healthcare providers and personal caregivers.
The API makes health information broadly available using FHIR®, a set of clinical interoperability resources under the umbrella of the HL7® standards organization. FHIR is based on common web standards, including XML and JSON, and can be reached through a RESTful protocol in which each FHIR resource has a known URL. The standard continues to grow and become more widely-used for patient data.
Dynamic Health IT's customizable Patient Portal integrates with our ConnectEHR® software, which is certified for ONC 2015 Edition. The Portal enables patients to easily view, download and transmit their clinical documents, view lab results and securely message with their clinician.
