  • 72 percent want to request prescription refills online.
  • 88 percent want to receive email reminders about preventive or follow-up care.

  1. Online our patients can; Request An Appointment, view our insurance providers, print the necessary forms for their initial visit, apply for financing through Care Credit. This is helpful for those who want to finance elective procedures, such as LASIK, advanced technology IOLs, or consmetic services.

  2. @Susan That’s great! I’m sure giving patients a variety of options when it comes to contacting your office, booking appointments and filling out forms is very convenient and impressive to them!

  3. Individuals can access so many other services online – why not healthcare? Carena http://www.carenamd.com is going a step further with CareSimple. Patients can receive medical care 24 hours a day and get diagnosis and treatment from a physician or advanced registered nurse practitioner in typically under an hour via phone or secure video (webcam) with no prior appointment necessary. Right now it is available through employers as a benefit, but later this year consumers will be able to access it directly.
