  3. 3. Key Findings The movement to fully engage the patient as a member of the care team is taking a strong hold across the US. The term “patient engagement” is increasingly used by numerous and diverse stakeholders to convey the idea of consumerism or consumer-directed healthcare. Patient engagement is related to the concept of “accountability,” which extends across the healthcare ecosystem and includes patients, who increasingly need to do more and pay more. A patient portal is a Web-based access point that allows healthcare providers and patients to communicate and share health information remotely, supplementing the ongoing management of the patient's care. Patient portals are seen as the key technology platform to enable patient engagement. Various health-related entities deploy patient portals including hospitals, physician practices, healthcare payers, health information exchange organizations, retail pharmacies, and others. There are different types of patient portals in terms of technology approaches. Some are stand-alone Web sites that sell their services to healthcare providers, and others are integrated into the existing Web site of a healthcare provider. Most commonly in today’s market, patient portals are included as modules added onto an existing electronic health record (EHR) or practice management (PM) system. Stand-alone patient portals solutions are primarily offered as a monthly subscription per licensed bed (hospitals) or per physician; these may function as a bolt on to the EHR system.
