Technology Improvement: Kalispell Regional hospital Patient Portal Education Access

The goal of this project is to improve access to Kalispell Regional Hospital's patient portal and patient education resources. This will be accomplished through a combination of technology implementation and training. The Network Member team will purchase and make available, on moveable carts in the Emergency Room waiting room, laptops with links to the patient portal system, and will purchase and make available iPads for use in inpatient units. Training will be provided to both clinical staff and patients on using these new technologies, accessing the patient portal and using MedlinePlus.gov. The expected outcomes of this project will be: -an increased number of patients signing up for a patient portal account -an increased use of the patient portal -implementation of MedlinePlus Connect
