You can create a Quick Response (QR) code for a page, using the latest version of Google Chrome Web browser or Chrome mobile app which helps to promote, access and share key pages like, say, your Patient Portal Homepage, Registration, Book appointments page, etc. with your patients easily.
For example, you can place a QR code on your external website (if any), which instantly directs patients to the Registration form of your Patient Portal, on scanning it. You can also share a QR code on your website, to promote Patient app installations from the App Store/Google Play Store.
Patients can quickly scan/read the QR code without the hassle of typing the entire URL, using QR code scanner apps installed on their mobile phones or a supported phone camera which may have built-in scanners.
It is important to note that this is not a platform feature, but is instead, an option supported by Google Chrome, that you might find helpful for your patients.
