Iris – Your Online Patient Portal

Iris, Hattiesburg Clinic’s patient portal, is a secure online connection to your health care providers and medical records.

There are many benefits to having an Iris account, including the ability to:

  • Access your online medical record.
  • Manage your appointments.
  • Review test results.
  • Renew prescriptions…and much more!

Iris makes managing your health easy and organized. From the Iris homepage, you have access to a variety of features at your fingertips. These features can be found under the tabs at the top of the page. Each tab lists options that are relevant to that particular topic (i.e., Health, Visits, Billing, etc.)

There’s also a menu of commonly used features to the right of your homepage. These are called “Quick Links.”

When it comes to staying on top of your health, let Iris work for you!


The menu in Iris gives you quick access to a wide selection of options to help you stay informed regarding your health, from viewing different aspects of your medical record to utilizing helpful medical tools.

From the menu you can:

  • View test results.
  • Look at your overall health with a comprehensive summary.
  • Review current medications and request or remove medications.
  • Start end-of-life planning.
  • Share your health record.
  • Use Share Everywhere to share your medical information with any provider who’s taking care of you; good for when you travel and need medical care.

Iris provides you a variety of options when it comes to scheduling appointments and managing your visits.

For existing patients:

  • Directly schedule an appointment with a provider you’ve seen before.
  • Request an appointment for important screenings (i.e., mammogram).
  • Schedule a video visit from the convenience of your home or work.

For new patients:

 Express appointments:

  • Use Immediate Care Express to schedule a visit in advance and skip the wait.
  • Video visits can also be scheduled for select needs (see the “Telehealth Video Visits” tab below for more information).

 After your appointment is scheduled:

  • E-check-in by completing a health questionnaire to save time at your appointment.
  • View upcoming visits.
  • Fast Pass – Request to be added to a waiting list for appointments that come available sooner than your initial appointment; available with select providers.

Hattiesburg Clinic offers telehealth video visits so you can electronically visit with certain providers through your Iris account.

Telehealth, also known as telemedicine, is the use of video and voice technology to deliver health care services at a distance. With Hattiesburg Clinic’s live telehealth video service, you have the ability to schedule time with a provider through a two-way video conference while never leaving your office or home. All you need is a device with a camera, such as a smart phone, tablet or computer. You must also have an active Iris account and contact your provider’s office to schedule the video visit. If you don’t have an Iris account, please contact your provider’s office and they will assist you in setting one up.

How to Use Telehealth:

Once your provider has scheduled your Telehealth video visit, the video visit will occur through the Iris application. Please follow these steps:

Preferred Method – from a mobile device:

(You must download the MyChart® app in order to utilize Telehealth from your mobile device. The mobile app can be downloaded from the Apple or Android Store)

  • Step 1 – Log in to your MyChart® app 15 minutes prior to your scheduled video visit.
  • Step 2 – Select “Appointments.”
  • Step 3 – Select your video visit appointment.
  • Step 4 – Complete eCheck-in, which includes verifying demographics, insurance, medications and allergies, as well as electronically signing a telemedicine consent.

From a computer:

  • Step 1 – Log in to Iris through the website 15 minutes prior to your scheduled video visit.
  • Step 2 – From the main page, select “Visits,” “Appointment and Visits,” then choose “eCheck-in” for your upcoming video visit.
  • Step 3 – Complete eCheck-in, which includes verifying demographics, insurance, medications and allergies, as well as electronically signing a telemedicine consent.

Once these steps are done, you will be ready to start your video visit. Please wait for the provider to join your visit. If you have issues while waiting for your scheduled time or during the visit, simply call your provider’s office or (601) 579-5432.
