Patient Portal - Practice Site Administration

The Patient Portal's Practice Site allows the practice to send and receive secure messages from patients and providers. It also provides administrative tools for the patient site. This page provides details on the different sections of the practice site.

Mailbox

Admin1
The Mailbox contains all of the practice's secure messages sent through the direct mail system. This also allows the practice to send messages directly to other providers and practices using their direct emails. The Mailbox contains the following items:
  • Inbox: This houses all incoming direct messages.
  • Sent: This houses all messages that have been sent out,
  • Archive: Provides a location to keep old messages that should not be deleted.
  • Trash: Provides a temporary location for deleted messages.
  • Address Book: Allows the user to create a list of providers or practices they send messages to.
  • Failed Items: Provides a list of items that failed to send.
From any area in the Mailbox, the user can click the Compose button to create a new message. Once you have clicked Compose, the new message section will replace the current information on the right-hand side of the screen. You can select the message recipient(s), add a subject for the message, compose the body of the message and attach documents if desired. Once the message is ready to send, click the Send button at the bottom of the window to send the message.

To adjust these settings first click the Edit button at the bottom of the page. To set the hours of operation, check off all days which you wish to set and select the time frame.

Practice logos can be uploaded using the Upload buttons in the logo and login page image tiles.
