The concept of the Universal Charts is core feature of the Clinical Network. Universal Charts are created when the system recognized with absolutely certainty that two or more copies of individual patient charts are recognized across providers. This happens when the patient's data is identified from the incoming information, such as lab results, discharge or admission summaries, or other information.
Alternatively, you may want to look up patients across the Network. See Network Patients article. Once you identify common patients located at other providers, you can enable chart sharing.
Locate and 0pen the chart you would like to share and request synchronization with other provider(s).
In the Chart Menu, locate the Sharing option:
The (OFF) next to menu will indicate that the chart is not currently synchronized.
In the Sharing screen select the provider with whom you would like to establish connectivity:
Please note: all providers in your practice or organization will be already synchronized, you don't need to manually establish sync with them.
Once you locate the provider for sharing, the system will verify their connectivity options. If the provider is enrolled they will receive an electronic message from you. If the provider is not yet enrolled in the Clinical Network, we will send them an invite to join. Please select available provider's fax number(s) or email address; you can overwrite their contact if you have more accurate information. The invited provider will have to verify their identity in order to join the Network and before they can view or exchange any data with you.
The other provider may select to accept the data from you but choose not to share their chart. While the system allows to do so, we do not recommend single-directional exchange and always encourage bi-directional exchanges to promote the quality of care.
Once the sync is established for this patient, all future documents will be shared through the Universal Chart and visible to all providers who subscribed to this Universal Chart. You can review the Universal chart access list in the Audit section (right below the Share menu) as well as your current established sync connections under the Share menu.
