Patient Perspective Testimonials in honor of National Health IT Week

Eva Lorenz, Ph.D., J.D., Senior Cybersecurity Consultant, Agio:

As a caregiver for my ailing mother, the availability of patient portals at hospitals has been a huge timesaver. Rather than try to play phone tag with the physician or his staff or scheduling almost weekly appointments, I have been able to communicate securely via the patient portal and sort out adjusting medication or check on lab results quicker and directly communicate with her physician. She had some medical issues that involved me reporting back to her physician on a weekly basis and communicating with him several times a week to obtain medical advice. What could have been a huge drain on my time, now took only a few minutes every day to send an email and then check for his response.
