June-ish 2020

Welcome to the somewhat tardy June 2020 issue of The Portal Periodical, which brings you updates on changes and additions to Portal, alerts you to relevant news & information, and solicits feedback to help us improve the Portal. We'd blame our lateness on the pandemic, but, well, you've heard that before. Want to get in touch? Please provide Feedback.

COVID-19 Information

We continue to update our COVID-19 information page on the Portal with links to accurate, credible resources for information about the global and national situation, as well as local information in partner regions. Our Services Directory offers information about a variety of potential service providers, including respite care, emergency food and financial assistance, and housing information. Please contact individual providers to confirm their hours and programs before visiting as many may have adjusted operations at this time. We hope you all stay safe and healthy.

Custom Lists

Did you know that you can build and share custom lists of Portal Service Providers for your family or patients? All you need is to set up a free, public Portal account with your email and Sign-in.
We've recently made updates to our lists to make them even easier to use. Improvements include clearer information about what list you are adding to and new options to add unsaved notes to a list for printing. As always, we ask that you not include personal health information (PHI) or your personal information in list names or descriptions.
