Free iPad with Patient Portal

Have you been a patient in the last three months? Everyone who registers and accesses their valuable health information is enrolled in the free i-pad drawing done at the end of September. Madison Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce that patients can now access their demographic, health history, billing, lab, and radiology information online using the Patient Portal! We have been offering this as a service to our patients since the middle of August, and so far 111 (about 6%) of our patients have enrolled and accessed their information online. Our goal is to continue building this service and to increase awareness of its availability so that more of our patients can access their information using this new and very convenient process.
