Healthcare organizations often rely on fragmented and disparate systems where information is trapped in silos. This makes collaboration difficult and getting a complete picture of a patient's health or billing status challenging, at best. In addition, healthcare providers are often overloaded with so much information, it's difficult and time-consuming to discern what's most relevant. Time-challenged health professionals need health portals - tools that deliver the right information at the right time and make it faster and easier to collaborate across the healthcare ecosystem.
Microsoft health portal solutions provide a foundation for more streamlined and efficient information sharing. This helps healthcare professionals work together more effectively, respond to issues more quickly, and deliver higher quality care at a lower overall cost.

Combined with mobile devices such as Tablet PCs and Pocket PCs with Microsoft Windows Mobile software, health portals give your people access to information at the point-of-care. Because they are built on proven Microsoft technologies, our health portal solutions help provide the security framework needed to achieve compliance with government regulations.
