During the months of May and June, MCOL and LexisNexis conducted an e-poll of healthcare professionals on their involvement and insights with health plan member portals. Respondents were categorized as Health Plan, Integrated delivery Network, Third Party Administrator (TPA), Self-Insured Employer, and Other. Overall, two thirds of the respondents indicated that they currently have a health plan member portal in place, and 43% of those who currently don’t have a health plan member portal in place plan on establishing one within the next 12 months.
MCOL’s infoGraphoid for this week highlights results from the MCOL / LexisNexis e-poll as well as Cigna’s experience with their CDHP customers’ use of health portals and a recent HIMSS Leadership survey on use of patient portals:
