General Business Case Presentation


“Sophrona Patient Portal is not your average primary care patient portal or EMR add-on. It uniquely addresses the needs of an ophthalmology practice such as ours. Every function clearly reflects Sophrona’s commitment to ophthalmology. Choosing Sophrona made sense because of their clear leadership in the industry and their demonstrated responsiveness to our needs.”
- Jeff Schackor, Practice Administrator Edina Eye Physicians & Surgeons, PA

Patient Adoption Marketing

Sage Office Portal

Viewing and Responding to Patient Communication

Clinic staff responds to patients through our Sage Office Portal. This browser based, secure clinic application is available from any internet connected computer in your office or at home.  The Sage Office Portal routes patient communication to appropriate staff for review and response.
  • Define roles that match your departments (scheduling, business office, contact lens department, medical staff, etc.) your process work flow
  • Define permissions for the roles (e.g. viewing paid bills).
  • Assign individual staff members to the roles.

“We wanted the ability to view and respond to patient communication quickly and easily. The office portal component of this solution is obviously designed for usability.  Learning how to use it took less than 15 minutes.”   – Kay Olson,  Clinic Office Manger

The Sage Office Portal easily becomes the foundation for your office intranet, enabling easy dissemination of news, policy changes, training, and other communication.

SageBridge Interface Engine - Implementation Strategy

Our SageBridge interface engine provides Sophrona Patient Portal with a 6-line bi-directional highway to most practice management systems and electronic medical record systems. Interfaces may be immediately implemented with Sophrona Patient Portal, but are not required to reap some of the benefits of online patient communication.  Many practices will first implement Sage Portal without SageBridge interfaces until transactional volume justifies the additional interface as a way of reducing quantifiable data entry work load. Sophrona heavily emphasizes the use of implementation strategies for any clinic considering a portal.  Interfaces should only be used when their is an interface specific ROI.


Sophrona Patient Portal is meant to handle the needs of an entire large healthcare enterprise:

  • Fully interactive, dynamic, enterprise grade transactional systems, running 24/7, 365 days per year.
  • Fully secure and HIPAA compliant.
  • Running as an ASP (application service provider).  No need for any software installation or maintenance at clinic site.
  • Runs out of a high security, high reliability, high redundancy data center running on dual power grids and dual carrier internet backbones.
  • Designed to support thousands of clinic offices and millions of patients.
