- •Most academic centers have patient portals (94% in our study), although 4 out of 5 institutions report less than 50% of their patients use them.
- •The majority of our respondents have some form of automatic report release to their portals.
- •Average lag between report completion to portal release is 4 days (range 0-7 days), although this may be miscalculated due to our small sample size.
