PATIENT PORTALS

 Patient portals and other Internet-based applications are often used in health care in the United States. These systems rely upon the commercial use of an Internet connection. Some areas cannot afford Internet or may have a cultural or religious objection to significant use of Internet applications as resources for the population being served. Discuss how this may affect the health care organization that is required to update processes in order to meet regulatory requirements. Provide supporting references for your response.
