Addressing the Disparities in Those Using Patient Portals

From the medical blog at, Zackary Berger, faculty member of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, reminds us consider access to patient portals in our move to increase patient engagement and improve EHR systems.  Berger states: “If we do not somehow make these portals widely available, without disparities or inequities, we risk doing what doctors have always done: thrust health interventions at their patients without regard for accessibility or patient-centeredness, and then act cynical or walk away when patients do not snap it up with alacrity.”
