Building on the core functionality of MTBC’s personal health record portal platform, PHR 2.0 allows patients to do the following:

  • Send and receive secure patient-provider communications
  • Check-in on the day of the appointment
  • View balances and process payments
  • Access patient charts
  • Request prescription refills
