Hospital Clínica Benidorm has launched a new digital space directed to their patients: the HCB Patient Portal. This is a secure digital platform created so that the patients and users of all the HCB centres can access online, their clinical history, medical tests, invoices, appointment calendar and even make an appointment with their medical specialist.
This platform captures the digital transformation which the organisation is taking, orientated to improve the experience of the patient: appointments online, digital medical details with straightforward access, also from the HCB APP.
These functions can be carried out from a computer, tablet or mobile, as the Patient Portal can be accessed from the websitehttps://portalpaciente.clinicabenidorm.com or via the App “HCB helps the patient” http://www.clinicabenidorm.com/app/, which has been updated to offer direct online access to these services, which are the ones that are requested the most by our patients.
The General Manager of Hospital Clínica Benidorm, Dr. Ana Paz, has presented the HCB Patient Portal as “a service which will improve the experience of our patients. It is a new means of communication to provide them with access to their medical information, whenever they need it.”
The HCB Patient Portal offers immediate and digitalised access to the patients’ most important information, safely, in order to protect their medical details. It also includes the platform for requesting an appointment online, any step taken by the patient through the medical centre is done respecting their security and privacy.
Online medical appointment
The HCB Patient Portal allows you to request medical appointments by choosing date, time, centre, doctor and specialty via the ‘NEW APPOINTMENT’ function. It is the patient who selects their preferences and controls their appointments whenever and from wherever they like. Additionally, the system will send you an email to remind you of your appointment details.
The Patient Portal offers a complementary service to the Online Doctor Appointment: the Appointment Calendar “MY APPOINTMENTS”. In this section you can consult, at any time, your upcoming appointments. It also allows the user to cancel an appointment if necessary.
Digital Clinical History
The access to the digitalised medical information of the patient is one of the principal services offered by the HCB Patient Portal. The section “MY CLINICAL HISTORY” collects the clinical history of the patient, as well as their most recent informed medical tests. This function allows the patients to access their medical information without limits, middle men or prior requests.
Documents and patient education
And last, but definitely not least, the HCB Patient Portal offers its users the section “MY HEALTH” which collects other patient details such as invoices and attendance certificates – which have been previously requested by the patients.
“MY HEALTH” includes a part that is very important regarding patient education where the specialists who attend to the patient can post personalised advice and recommendations, depending on the pathology or the reasons of their most recent visits.
