Eighty-four percent of people say their doctor’s offices have a patient portal, according to a new survey commissioned by eClinicalWorks and conducted online by Harris Poll among over 2,000 U.S. adults, in March 2015.

Of those whose doctors do have a patient portal, adults age 55+ (61%) are more likely to access their health information via this tool than adults age 18-54 (45%).

eClinicalWorks® has released an infographic on the study results, which also examines wearable use, online patient scheduling and physician-patient communication via online portals.
