Making Your Life Easier
HealthLink is a web-based application within the Epic electronic health record (EHR) for connecting healthcare organizations – such as Banner – University Medicine (UAHN) – to their community affiliates. Based on Epic Systems Corp.’s EpicCare Link program, it provides a secure portal for authorized users to access select patient information in the UAHN Epic EHR data repository. Log in to HealthLink.
HealthLink is not an EMR solution. It is a read-only application with some service-oriented features such as referral requests, radiology, and laboratory order entry.
Examples of authorized users include people outside of Banner – University Medicine who might need to review the clinical and administrative information of patients seen at our facilities. This includes the following people:
- Referring Physicians
- Referred-to Physicians
- Designated physician and support staff delegates
Increasingly, this community user group has grown to include affiliate billers, long-term care facilities, correctional facilities, and other non-traditional roles involved in patient care. Rather than give these users full access to Epic's applications, we can allow them through HealthLink to access a subset of patient information stored in our Epic databases.
