Patient Portal Consent for Adult Patients
Lawrence Pediatrics offers patients the ability to securely view their medical record, schedule well child exams, and communicate with our office via an on-line patient portal.
Using the patient portal, patients can:
View / download their medical records
View upcoming appointments and self schedule certain appointment types
Send non-urgent messages to the office securely
Request forms, referrals, medication refills, etc
View billing statements and make account payments via InstaMed integration
Secure messaging can be a valuable tool but it does have certain risks. This form will explain those risks and the conditions for participation in the portal.
How the portal works: The portal uses encryption to keep unauthorized persons from reading any part of the transmission of information. Secure portal messages and health information can only be accessed by someone who knows the correct username and password to log onto the portal site.
Protecting your health information: Using a secure website prevents unauthorized parties from being able to access or read portal messages while they are in transmission. Keeping portal messages secure depends on you keeping your username and password secure. If you share your password with others, your information is not secure. If you think someone knows your password, you should change it. We do not share your email or other information with anyone else without your permission. Any parent or guardian you allow access will need their own login information.
Response time: We try to respond to messages and requests within 1 business day. If you do not receive a response within two business days, please call our office. DO NOT USE THE PORTAL FOR EMERGENT OR
