Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

WhatsUpDoc: A Patient Portal Technology
by Romer, Courtney, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 48; 10262577
Abstract (Summary)

Health information technology has made considerable progress over the last ten years, but not for the population that matters the most, the patients. To counteract this problem, WhatsUpDoc provides healthcare professionals with an intuitive and user friendly patient portal technology. It allows patients to view simplified test and lab results, make payments online, request or schedule appointments, exchange secure messaging with their providers, and lastly request prescriptions and refills. WhatsUpDoc contains the same features of the leading vendors, but demonstrates one major distinction: a commitment to better patient usability and comprehension.
