Improve Patient Outcomes With a Custom Patient Portal

Enhancing patient outcomes requires secure and efficient data management. Facilitate engagement and improve your patient experience with a custom patient portal software.

The pandemic placed a heavy burden on healthcare organizations, not only because of COVID-19 but also due to the vulnerabilities brought by manual or semi-digital processes. The demand for contactless patient care has never been higher. Staff are working remotely. Appointments need to be scheduled carefully
and accurately.

Now, more than ever, hospitals, clinics and testing centers need to digitize and automate processes. They need to improve patient care while dealing with a health crisis, using limited resources. A no-code patient portal will surely help.

Patient portals help improve preventive and chronic disease management by nearly 10% for some conditions, according to Kaiser Permanente. Other studies confirm that portals generate patient loyalty and increase patient satisfaction and engagement.

It’s no surprise that 90% of healthcare organizations are already using some form of patient portal access, according to the Medical Group Management Association. However, almost 40% said their portal does not accept patient-generated data that physicians can review. Another 20% were uncertain.

The Challenges of Building a Patient Portal

Creating an online patient portal is one thing; building a HIPAA-compliant system is another. Here are some of the challenges you may face when building a healthcare application:

Strictly enforcing HIPAA compliance

Ensuring your organization remains HIPAA-compliant in handling protected health information (PHI) and personally identifiable information (PII) requires expert guidance, thorough evaluation of patient data, robust encryption and even third-party solutions among other considerations.

Centralizing your healthcare tools

Healthcare organizations are mandated to ensure interoperability. Your patient portal or any other IT tool must be able to “talk” to other systems. Doing so not only ensures a faster and more transparent exchange of data, it also helps improve disease management and patient outcomes.

Acquiring support from the IT Team

Launching new initiatives like online patient registration and contactless appointment scheduling greatly enhances patient satisfaction. But even with knowledge and expertise on regulatory requirements, short-staffed IT teams and limited infrastructure can slow down patient
portal development.

Finding the budget to start development

Healthcare organizations also have to deal with the steep cost of traditional software development. With U.S. software engineers having a base pay of around $126,000 per year on top of paying for infrastructure, essential custom tools typically come with
significant investment.

The Biggest Benefits of Patient Portals

As the medical industry shifts its focus towards patient-centered care, patient portals are becoming an essential tool for many healthcare organizations. Here are some of the most significant benefits of patient portals:


Patient portals help increase efficiency within organizations by establishing clear communication lines between physicians and their patients. Patient portals help save time when registering new clients by enabling patients to enter personal information without having to answer the same questions repeatedly.


Physicians and patients will be able to access personal health information — from every healthcare tool — in one place. If a patient sees different specialists, the patient can be informed about medical results and reminders. Likewise, physicians will be able to see treatments and prescriptions that their patients are getting.


Healthcare receptionists and nurses no longer have to deal with basic, non-urgent questions over the phone. Streamline patient queries through your patient portal and move frequently asked questions to the portal app. As a result, you reserve your phone lines and staff time for more urgent matters.


With patient portals, you can avoid misinterpretation of patient information when relaying them to nurses and physicians. Allowing patients to directly input and send messages through the portal will ensure their concerns are interpreted correctly, leaving no room for errors
and inconsistencies.

Essential Interfaces for Your Patient Online Portal

Caspio empowers healthcare professionals to create HIPAA-compliant database applications to their exact specifications, with no coding required. Here are some essential interfaces to consider for your custom-built
patient portal:

Patient Registration

Patient Registration

Enables patients to input necessary information and create a profile using a computer or a tablet. Caspio is a HIPAA-compliant platform, which means your patients’ sensitive information
remains secure.

Physician Directory

Physician Directory

Gain insight into your physicians’ accreditations, specializations and billable hours. Meanwhile, patients can browse through the directory and choose the healthcare professional best suited for their concern.

Patient Consent

Patient Consent

Publish custom forms that capture and manage patient consent for different types of treatment. Each submission is logged in a secure and compliant database for efficient record keeping. Decentralized systems and paper-based alternatives have higher risks of breaches and data loss.

Appointment Scheduling

Appointment Scheduling

Manage patient appointments in an online calendar with a tailor-made booking system. Easily send automated SMS or email notifications through the portal to remind patients of their consultation schedules and
minimize cancellations.

Patient Management

Patient Management

Contains medical records of patients including history, dates of previous consultations, physician notes and prescriptions, among others. Physicians can also use this feature to record and keep track of their patients’ vital signs and biometrics.

Healthcare Dashboards

Healthcare Dashboards

Reporting tools that summarize clinic or physician metrics, such as the number of patients seen in the last six months. Physicians can also use healthcare dashboards to access key patient statistics in real-time.

Online Billing

Online Billing

View e-statements, make payments, receive receipts and check billable physician hours. By logging into the app, physicians will be able to input prices for consultations and treatments, while patients will see the breakdown of associated charges.

How do I know if my patient portals are secure?

Caspio-powered apps feature password encryption, record-level security, fine-grained user permissions and other safeguards from our enterprise-grade infrastructure. Any patient portal you build also benefits from an audit trail to keep a record of who accessed your EHR, what changes were made and when they were implemented. Caspio ensures that health information always remains private and protected against unauthorized entities.

How do I know my patient portal is HIPAA-compliant?

A HIPAA-compliant patient portal comes with technical guardrails in terms of access, audit and integrity controls — protecting sensitive health information from malicious entities. Since Caspio provides a HIPAA edition, your patient online portal can reliably operate in a secure and compliant environment. Caspio also signs BAAs with our business associates for legal protection and compliance of all parties involved.
