Care Everywhere

YOUR CHILDREN'S HEALTH IS OUR PRIORITY Care Everywhere is a system by which your children's health information can be shared electronically between health care providers to aid in their treatment.  This secure, digital electronic medical record provides continuity of care so that you can rest assured you're receiving the highest quality care no matter where they are being treated.

The Care Everywhere system enables physicians to make the best decisions possible about your children's care because they are able to access their medical history, allergies, medications, lab results, and other pertinent reports.  Having this access to your children's health information can save you and your health care team time and medical costs.

HOW DOES SHARING MY RECORD WORK? We want to help your children get safe and effective care at our organization and other places where they receive treatment.  We might share their record with other health care providers outside of this office and to your health plan so that their information is accessible to the care team.  For example, we might share your children's record so their doctors have access to their health history in emergencies or that a specialist they were referred to has a clear picture.

Care Everywhere allows health care providers at other organizations to request and exchange important information for care.  Secure, electronic exchange of your children's record gives the care team information they need to make informed decisions about the care and could even help prevent mistakes or help you avoid unnecessary test or procedures.  Electronic exchange of your children's record can also help improve your experience by decreasing the amount of their medical history and records you need to remember, bring with your, or have sent to outside healthcare providers.

Who can request my children's information? Health care organizations that identify your children as one of their patients can request their record from our organization.  This helps members of the care team to coordinate the different aspects of their care.

What information is shared? Any information in your children's electronic health record might be shared for the purposes of treatment, including:   - Allergies   - Immunizations   - Medications    - Medical, surgical, family, and social history   - Clinic and hospital visits   - Test results   - Diagnoses   - Procedures

How is my children's information protected? We carefully protect the privacy and security of your information using different physical, administrative and technical controls.  When we share your children's health information with authorized requestors, their record is encrypted and delivered in a secure, electronic format.

You can choose to limit the sharing of your children's health information to their care providers at this organization.  

OPT OUT OF CARE ANYWHERE You have the right to decide whether your children's information is shared through the Care Everywhere system.  You can choose to opt out of sharing information  through Care Everywhere or to require that your consent by obtained for each release of information.  You can change your mind at any time.
