OP Patient Portal: Glossary -- Application


In the OP Patient Portal, the term Application refers to any of the individual regions on the page (normally separated by its own header and/or visible borders) that can be either be viewed or used by the portal user. Applications can be anything from a simple, small area of informative text, or they can be useful tools like the Write Message or Form Request applications. Applications create the interface that your users will interact with to access their information, update their records, and communicate with you and your staff.

The Office Practicum Patient Portal software runs on top of an open-source portal program called Liferay Portal. Liferay Portal comes with its own Applications, called "portlets", that allow for basic content management, such as editing text, uploading pictures, blogging, managing a wiki, etc.;

Office Practicum has developed its own set of applications that adhere to the Liferay standard. These applications are what your portal users will interact with to accomplish healthcare-related tasks.
