Sharing to transform health and healthcare
HIP supports the development and dissemination of tools for evidence-based health system change through its website, HIPxChange.
Featured Toolkit: Partnering with Parents of Hospitalized Children Using an Inpatient Portal
An inpatient portal is a patient-facing web-based application intended to engage hospitalized patients and their caregivers by providing secure access to their personal health information.
The Partnering with Parents of Hospitalized Children Using an Inpatient Portal toolkit was developed to help guide the introduction, implementation, and/or evaluation of an inpatient portal in healthcare organizations.
The toolkit contains materials to engage institutional stakeholders, implementation timeline and planning information, key decisions and considerations, data collection tools to monitor the impact of the portal, and more. You can learn more about the implementation of the inpatient portal at American Family Children's Hospital here.
