Getting Started Incomplete

These guides will step you through the process of registering as a patient and scheduling your appointment with a Brain Health Institute clinician.  It’s not a complicated process, but these instructions are meant to take out all of the guesswork by listing exactly what to do at every step along the way.

Step 1 – Requesting Access to the Patient Portal

Requesting access to the patient portal is easy, just complete the form on the front page of our website (here) 

In order to register as a patient we need your first and last name, email address, phone number, date of birth and the state you live in (or Outside of USA).  Once we receive your request, you will be sent an invitation to complete your patient registration within 24 hours.

 

Step 2 – Activating your Patient Portal Account

Activating your Patient Portal account is simple. You will receive an email from Brain Health Institute <noreply@athenahealth.com> with the subject

Patient Portal Registration. It contains the full instructions, including a help video, but all you really have to do is click the link in that email, and follow the on screen instructions to create a new password for your account.

If you already have a athenahealth account, because another practice you visit uses the same system, you have to make sure to fully logout of Athenahealth first, and then go back to the invitation to click the link again to start the process of adding Brain Health Institute to your existing AthenaHealth account.  You will not need to create a second account, rather when you login you will choose which practice you want to login to.

 

Step 3 – Requesting an Appointment

There are two ways to request an appointment, and both are easy, so please choose whichever is more convenient for you. 

Note:  Please always make sure you are scheduling an appointment with a doctor who is licensed to treat you in the state you will be in at the time of your appointment.

From the Meet The Doctors page on our web site:

  1. Visit the meet the doctors web page at https://brainhealthinstitute.com/meet-the-clinicians
  2. Click the doctors picture that you would like to make an appointment with to scroll to their bio.
  3. Click the “SCHEDULE APPOINTMENT” button
  4. Verify the doctor is licensed to treat you in your state
  5. Select an appointment type (new patient or follow-up, and 30 or 60 minutes)
  6. Use the calendar to select an open time that fits your schedule
  7. Complete the form
  8. Enter your payment information (or select card on file)
  9. Click CONFIRM

From the Patient Portal

  1. Login to the Athena Health patient portal Here
  2. Select REQUEST APPOINTMENT at the top center, in the blue bar
  3. Select the facility for your doctor (by their name), and then select the doctor (their name again)
  4. Select an appointment type (new patient or follow-up, and 30 or 60 minutes)
  5. Enter the reason for your appointment, and payment information (or select card on file)
  6. Click REQUEST, at the bottom right

That’s it, your appointment will be scheduled and you will see it listed under the appointment option in your patient portal.

 

Step 4 – Complete your assigned questionnaires

Your doctor will assign questionnaires to you based on the type of visit (new patient or follow-up), and your specific needs (food diary, and others).  Please complete these questionnaires 24 hours before your appointment, to give your doctor time to review them ahead of time.  Doing so will enable you to have an efficient and productive appointment with your doctor.

To view  and complete your assigned questionnaires:

  1. Login to the Athenahealth patient portal here
  2. Click the Questionnaire icon
  3. Click the questionnaire name (Informed Consent, New Patient Intake, 3-Day Food Diary, etc.)
  4. Complete the questionnaire
  5. Go on to the next one!

 

Step 5 – Checking in for your Appointment

Checking in for your appointment is simple.  Just follow the steps below to login to your patient portal, list your upcoming appointment, and click the CHECK-IN link with the camera icon.  This will open up Zoom, your doctor will join at your appointment time, and you will have an audio and video visit with your doctor.

  1. Login to the Athenahealth patient portal here
  2. Click the Appointments icon (looks like a calendar and watch)
  3. Click CHECK-IN, next to your scheduled appointment date and time

 

Step 6 – Uploading Lab Results and Documents

Uploading prior labs, logs, and other documents into your patient portal will help your doctor to have a more in-depth understanding of your current health condition.  To upload these files, just follow these steps.

  1. Login to the Athenahealth patient portal here
  2. Click the Documents icon
  3. Click Upload, and browse to find your file, or multiple files
  4. Click Upload and Share
  5. Select the provider, or providers you would like to share the documents with
  6. Click Share

That’s all there is to it.  You will be able to see the files you uploaded listed in your documents.  On the left hand side you can click Shared By Me to see which of your documents have been shared, the date they were shared, and who has access to see them.

You can also hover your mouse over a document to share it after it has been uploaded, or to download it back to your own computer, or to delete it.
