SAMC Patient Portal

SAMC's new Patient Portal, available through the hospital's website, improves patient satisfaction0705PatientPortal310x153 by allowing patients to see a summary of care from their recent hospital stay. In the photo, Elondra Boykin, Outpatient Registration, gives a brochure to a patient and explains SAMC's new Patient Portal on the web. The web Portal provides easy access to their patient records, including lab results and a list of medications. After discharge, patients will receive an email from SAMC with a link to set up an account on the Portal where records are stored and maintained in a secure setting. The Portal will only be populated with information after July 1. Patients who sign in after discharge will get their names entered into a drawing for a free iPad.
