Exciting Announcement from BIHS!

Mon, 01/29/2018 - 9:00am

We at BIHS are continually striving to improve the quality, scope and efficiency of the healthcare services we provide for our Block Island Community and visitors.

Among recent improvements such as the addition of physical therapy and risk reduction programs, addition of new staff, implementation of a women’s health program, and standardization of our financial assistance program, we are also implementing a new web-based electronic health record, Athenahealth, that we are certain will better serve the community.

The new program allows you to set up an account in the Patient Portal, securely communicate via email with your provider, schedule appointments or request prescription refills online, and to view lab and other results as soon as they are available.

As we implement the new system, you will be asked to update demographic and insurance information, sign up for the Patient Portal, and complete standardized consents for your record. We want to make sure we record your information accurately.

You can help:

• Arrive 10-15 minutes early for your next appointment to make sure, with the help of our front office staff, that your registration information is completely up to date. (or, you may download the registration form at www.bihealthservices.com, complete it prior to your visit and bring it with you to save time.
• Bring a copy of your insurance card and driver’s license to your next visit.
• Sign up for the “Patient Portal” as soon as possible. https://16978.portal.athenahealth.com/
• Be patient with us as we complete this valuable transition!

As always, please remember, we will provide medical attention to everyone, regardless of ability to pay and financial assistance is available.
