Change ePrescribing Settings in the Mobile App

Patient Portal Security (Patient Portal)
We’re making your patients’ portal accounts even more secure by implementing multi-factor authentication (MFA) to ensure only authorized users are able to access their accounts. Patients will now need to verify their identity when they log in to the patient portal. This feature will be released in stages over the next few months.
We have created an MFA patient resource, where patients can get step-by-step instructions on how to access their portal accounts.
