Midday Guest: Samantha Andrus with Hattiesburg Clinic

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Today's Midday Guest was Samantha Andrus, marketing project manager at Hattiesburg Clinic.

Andrus spoke about Iris, the onlin ebill pay option available to Hattiesburg Clinic patients.

The following is a news release from Hattiesburg Clinic

Hattiesburg Clinic patients now have the option to pay their medical bills online through Iris, the secure portal that connects patients to their Hattiesburg Clinic health care providers and records.

Through Iris, patients can also use bill pay to view up to 10 previous statements online, view their current balance, opt in or out of paper statements and view their recent payments.

Katherine P. Alexis, MD, a family medicine physician with Hattiesburg Clinic, believes Iris is a beneficial communication tool that helps her to stay engaged with patients in between office visits.  "Iris allows the patient to send the information at his/her convenience, and we have documentation in the chart that is easy to find and review at office visits," she added.

Using Iris, patients can message their providers, request prescription refills on most medications, schedule appointments, receive certain test results, review medical history and link family records through any Internet connecting device.

Iris is available to all Hattiesburg Clinic patients, but a username and password are required. For more information about Iris, call 601.579.5432 or visit www.hattiesburgclinic.com.
