Ris Concepts, of Miami, Fla., has announced a new patient data access portal for its RCI-RIS, a browser-based multi-facility application that supports a comprehensive range of advanced RIS features.

The portal enables registered patients to log in over the Internet and download reports and related data in real time using a HIPAA-compliant password. Radiologists’ final signed reports are accessible as well.

"With today’s new emphasis on patient and referring physician access to healthcare information, this new portal feature puts RIS Concepts in the vanguard of progressive healthcare and meets a growing need among radiologists," said Christie Hentschl, vice president of sales and marketing for RIS Concepts.

Features of RCI-RIS include real-time scheduling, dictation, transcription, patient demographics, document scanning and billing, as well as proprietary HL7 engine.
