What a wonderful time of year – food, fun, fellowship, and just being thankful to spend another holiday season with the ones we love the most! With so much happening in our everyday lives the Children’s Wellness Center (CWC) providers wanted to take a moment to reflect on a great year we have had and share what we are most thankful for as we get closer to ending another year. For us, our patients are what we are most thankful for because the sense of community you all have helped us foster has encouraged us to continue to strive ahead as we forge a positive partnership between our physicians and your family.
2015 has truly been a great year for us and the entire CWC team! We launched our brand new website that we are incredibly proud to share with all of our current and future patients. In our opinion, our website was greatly improved thanks in part to some very special helpers who joined us along the way – our patients! Many of you graciously shared your patient testimonial stories for our new site and even spent a fun day with us during our photo shoot (yes, those pictures are actual patients and their families!), so we certainly want to extend a special thank you for helping make our new site possible!
In addition to helping you get to know us a little bit better, there are several new features that we added to our website in hopes of streamlining your child’s care. We really wanted to make your time with us more efficient and beneficial so we cover a wide-range of topics including helpful information regarding what to do when your child is sick and medicine dosing guidelines to a brand new patient portal that lets you access your child’s important health information 24/7.
As we look forward to the upcoming year, we are hopeful that 2016 will be even more rewarding as we continue to grow our Children’s Wellness Center family and strive to provide the very best care for your child as we possibly can. You all have been so wonderful this year and we could not ask for a better group of patients to serve. Thank you for your continued support and everyone here at Children’s Wellness Center would like to wish you and your family a very happy holiday and even happier New Year!

Who doesn’t love simplifying their lives? Since we live in a technology-driven world where information can be accessed in the blink of an eye, we can find what we need on the go – anywhere you have access to the internet. At Children’s Wellness Center (CWC) we are big fans of simplifying and helping our parents stay organized, especially when it’s important materials relating to their child’s healthcare! In our first blog series we introduced some of the features on our brand new website that we are most proud of because we really want to let everyone know the additions we’ve added to make the entire experience at CWC better than the last. This week, we’re focusing on our online patient portal, what it can do for you, and how to get set up for future use.
Patient Portal 411
The main intent of our patient portal is to give parents access to much of their child’s medical information in a safe and secure, yet easy to access, location. Here you can view and request important information 24/7 and even send and receive electronic messages with our practice. From reviewing pending checkups and appointments, account balances, prescription requests, vaccination/allergy records, and appointment requests, our portal is like your one-stop-shop at your fingertips. This lets you skip a phone call, save a trip to the office, or interrupt travel plans because you’re not able to physically see us.
Setting Up Your Patient Portal
ALL CWC patients’ parents must first print out and complete the new patient paperwork (look under step 1 “New Patient Packet & Forms) before we can get you registered for patient portal access. Just complete the paperwork and bring it with you on your next visit or fax it to us at 404-303-1399 so we can get you set up in our system. Once we’ve received the paperwork and gotten you squared away, follow these simple steps to set up your new account:
- From the main patient portal page, on the right hand side of your screen, select “Create Account.”
- Enter your child’s first, middle, and last name as well as the best email address where you can be reached.
- Once we have received your registration you’ll get an email with a temporary password that will give you access to your portal.
- When you’re successfully inside your patient portal you can modify your username/password as you wish.
- That’s it; you’re all set.
Questions About The Children’s Wellness Center Portal?
Insider tip: we recommend that you do not register using a mobile phone or tablet/iPad – just to minimize data entry errors. Sometimes confirmation emails or correspondence can get accidentally buried in your spam folder so if you’re waiting longer than you think is normal for that email, start there! If you have any questions about registering or troubleshooting, we are just a phone call, just give us a call at 404-303-1314, or email away and will be more than happy to help get you set up. Join us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ for more Children’s Wellness Center news and updates or to just drop us a line because we always enjoy staying connected with our extended CWC family!
