MyMoffitt Patient Portal Offers Information Access
Moffitt has taken patient communication to the next level. The MyMoffitt Patient Portal
offers our patients a free, secure personal gateway into their medical care at Moffitt Cancer Center.
Easily accessed via a link on the MOFFITT.org
home page, the Patient Portal allows patients to schedule their appointments online. Once logged on to the Portal, patients can view upcoming appointments and appointment instructions, complete patient questionnaires prior to their appointment, view and request updates to personal health information, review approved lab results and review approved clinical notes immediately after physician signature. Additionally, patients can securely communicate with Moffitt providers and staff to request prescription renewals, request changes to existing appointments or request
new appointments. Via the Portal, patients can obtain helpful information on cancer survivorship and other patient-related topics. The Patient Portal also links to a landing page with information for patients who have consented to be part of Moffitt’s Total Cancer Care® study.
Moffitt Patient Portal, with over 30,000 current users, has seen significant growth over the past 18 months. Of the new patients who come to Moffitt Cancer Center, 87% of them register for a Patient Portal account. Last year the Patient Portal introduced several enhancements, including a smart search engine that allows patients to use the Patient Portal to search for medical information, clinical trials and support groups, both within and outside of Moffitt Cancer Center. Medical information that is relevant to the patient’s demographics and relevant to their specific type of cancer, is sourced from internal Moffitt systems, government sources as well as reliable third party sources,” says Mark Hulse, R.N., vice president, Information Technology, and chief information officer for Moffitt.
Additional recent enhancements include a section dedicated to Patient Education, a section highlighting the Cancer Support Services Moffitt offers, interactive tutorials for all functionality within the Patient Portal, and the ability for patients to request their full medical records.
