The Patient Portal User Reference Node allows you to create Patient Portal Users that can then be assigned to particular patients. This allows the Portal User to access the patient's information via the Patient Portal.
A Portal User can access one or multiple patients. For example, a parent may be given access to the patient health information of multiple dependents. The Patient Portal User will log in to the Patient Portal using the Username and password assigned in References > Patient Portal User.
To create a new Patient Portal User, select the Patient Portal User node in References and click the plus button. Add the Username, First Name, and Last Name. Though not required, a Sex, Phone, and Email can also be added to the Patient Portal User record.
When the record is saved, the Patient Access password sheet will appear to add the password which will be used by the Patient Portal User to log in to the Patient Portal. Add any password desired, or click the Generate and Print password to have a password automatically created and then printed.
To add patients for whom the User can access clinical information, click the plus button on the Patient this account can access table. Search for and select a patient from the list to grant the User access to the patient's record through the Patient Portal.
