About Online Help

The Provider Portal application gives you access to context-aware Help.

Access Online Help

Select the help icon  on portal pages* to access Help. Help is displayed on a new tab in your browser. This enables you to toggle between the portal application and the associated Help. Help topics are context-aware and based on the portal function you are accessing, for example if you select the help icon  from the Results Inbox page, the Help for Results Inbox is displayed.

*Help is available for most, but not all portal functions. 

Online Help Features

Help contains the following features:

  • At the top of each Help page is a banner containing the following elements: 
    • Health Information Exchange (HIE) logo
    • Language Translation Capability - convert the text on Help pages in to different languages using a free online translation service from Google
    • Search Capability - use keywords to search for portal Help topics
  • The "See Also" box lists related Help topics that you can select
  • Select Helpful at the bottom of each Help page to submit feedback on the Help page
