Health expenses can be difficult to keep track of, whether you are a patient or a provider. Our most recent PHR update helps solve that, with a brand new health spending tool for Patient Fusion users.
With helpful spending graphs and automatic insurance claim updates, patients can stay on top of expenses and bills to your practice—all while staying healthy. This will initially be available for patients with Anthem, Aetna, Blue Shield of California, Cigna, Humana, Medicare, Oxford and United Healthcare, with more payers coming quickly.
In addition to the new health spending tool, Patient Fusion’s Health Center has a new look. Better navigation, clear explanations of lab results and medication instructions make it easier for your patients to stay engaged—and help fulfill your Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements for patient PHR adoption.
To help patients start using this new health spending feature, we will be letting them know about the updated Health Center through our standard patient emails.
*If you are enrolling patients by phone, be sure to provide their PIN
Once your patient receives an enrollment email, they can register using the PIN on the instructions page.
Patients in the Health Center can see recorded medications, diagnoses and immunizations, upcoming appointments, and lab results you share with them.
Help your patients stay on top of their health finances and keep healthy—tell your patients about the Patient Fusion Health Center today!
