What is CareLink?
CareLink is an Epic application designed for use by non-affiliated community providers to access their patients’ records. This group includes referring physicians and members of their clinical, billing and coding staff; non-affiliated sub-acute and post-acute facilities, including their case managers; and health plans. In other words, CareLink is for more than just physicians!
When you refer a patient to any facility within the Hillcrest HealthCare System, you'll have access to your patient's complete record, including:
- Patient Chart Review: Office visits, inpatient and ER encounters. Filters are available so you can locate information quickly and accurately.
- Event Monitoring: Receive notifications when medical events occur with your patients.
- Patient Chart Notation: Send notes to be added to your patient's chart.
- Documents and Images: Upload and have them added to your patient's chart.
- Electronic Images and Labs: Order MRIs, CTs, x-rays, mammograms, etc.
- Electronic Referrals: Monitor referral status within any department or specialty.
- Upcoming Appointments: Review your patients' upcoming appointments.
- Customized Views: Adjust settings to view the information you need most often.
Tablets must use iPad Safari or Android Chrome browsers.
CareLink’s “In Basket” does more than just send you notifications; you can communicate with other providers, make requests and stay connected while your patient is in our care.
