OnPatient Basics


Our patient portal, OnPatient, allows patients to engage with their Personal Health Record (PHR). Through DrChrono you can enabling online scheduling, access to health information, and secure messaging. OnPatient empowers patients to be more active with their health records and with your practice. 

Inviting Patients to OnPatient

Enabling your patients is simple with an email address: 

  • And the patient's Social Security Number
  • Or the patient's Date of Birth and Phone Number


Once enabled, OnPatient providers several key features for you and your patients. 


1. Secure Messaging
After signing up for OnPatient, they have the ability to send and receive messages to and from their provider. 


A provider or staff member can see the message from the patient, reply, make notes, view his chart, upload the document, and even assign it as a task to another member of the practice. 


2. Online Scheduling
Using OnPatient, patients can schedule appointments directly on the calendar as long as that office is enabled for online scheduling.  Patients can log in, select an available time slot, schedule an  appointment and provide a reason for visit.



The patient will receive an email confirmation of the appointment, and the practice can now view and edit the appointment on the schedule using DrChrono. 


3. Intake and consent forms
From onpatient.com or from the OnPatient app, a patient can log in and update forms for upcoming appointments. 

The patient can then update demographic information, patient photo, medical history, reasons for visit, additional questionnaires, and even sign consent forms, reducing in-office paperwork and increasing efficiency. 


4. Electronic Health Information
Once an appointment is complete, the patient can log onto OnPatient and view the health information from the visit as well as download a clinical summary with medications, allergies, and lab results, keeping the patients informed and in control of their personal health.
