Abstract
Patient portals are positioned as a central component of patient engagement through the potential to change the physician-patient relationship and enable chronic disease self-management. In this article, we extend the existing literature by discovering design gaps for patient portals from a systematic analysis of negative users’ feedback from the actual use of patient portals. Specifically, we adopt topic modeling approach, LDA algorithm, to discover design gaps from online low rating user reviews of a common mobile patient portal, EPIC’s mychart. To validate the extracted gaps, we compared the results of LDA analysis with that of human analysis. Overall, the results revealed opportunities to improve collaboration and to enhance the design of portals intended for patient-centered care.
