Sponsored by: Patient Portal Roll-Out Strategy

Increasing patient portal usage is one of several key attributes that contribute to better performing physician practices, according to new research from the Medical Group Management Association. Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN)'s patient portal launch in 2015 and its continued growth in portal users has earned it the distinction of being the fastest growing patient portal on the Epic platform.

During Patient Portal Roll-Out Strategy: Activating and Engaging Patients in Self-Care and Population Health, a November 15th webinar at 1:30 p.m. Eastern, Lindsay Altimare, director of operations, Lehigh Valley Physician Group at LVHN and Dr. Michael Sheinberg, medical director, Medical Informatics, Epic Transformation, LVHN, will share the initial portal roll-out strategy as well as the key details on how portal engagement and functionality have evolved since its launch.
