Windsor, CT, July 19, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Origin Healthcare Solutions’ (OHS) Connecticut operating center, formerly SSIMED, is pleased to announce that it has selected Medfusion, the nation’s leader in self-service patient portals to provide patient portal solutions to its physician practice clientele.

Physician practices will be able to have their patients pre-register, request appointments, renew prescriptions and more using Medfusion’s secure, online HIPAA-compliant patient portal. Patient data will populate OHS practice management system (PMS) with patient demographics and other relevant patient information entered into the portal by patients.

“With the integration of the Medfusion portal, we are able to provide our clients with a state-of-the-art web portal solution. By improving patient communications, providing better accessibility and offering tools to increase data accuracy and decrease processing time, we are able to continue a tradition of providing healthcare providers with solutions to make their job easier,” said Frank Perrotta Jr, Sr VP of Origin Healthcare Solutions.

“We’re excited about our partnership with OHS because we’re able to offer their healthcare clientele a secure and robust patient portal that will enable them to better serve their patients. Patients will gain the convenience of patient-physician communications outside of the doctor’s office to do things like complete forms in their home anytime of the day or ask questions online instead of calling the office and having to be put on hold,” commented Steve Malik, Medfusion’s Chief Executive Officer.
