Duke to allow patients to set appointments online
Raleigh News & Observer, March 26, 2008
The Duke University Health System is giving patients the ability to set medical appointments over the Internet as part of a systemwide effort to encourage patients to take greater control of their care. To use the appointment scheduling feature, patients must register on Duke's new patient portal, called Healthview. The site, which currently has about 25,000 users, already enables patients to update personal information, including health insurance, view and pay medical bills and look at scheduled appointments.
