Introduction

This article will show how to register as a new patient through your health care clinic's portal. If you

already registered in person at the clinic you need not do this. The clinic will provide you the portal URL from their website or by some other means.


The LibreHealthEHR patient portal offers many helpful tools for communication between patient and healthcare provider. The portal can save both a lot of time, allowing patients and providers to exchange documents and messages as well as update personal information.
