We know that we don’t always get sick or injured at home. Should you find yourself accessing care in another part of the state or even country, as a Saguaro Physician patient you are part of Care Everywhere.
Care Everywhere, created by Epic Systems Corp. of Verona, Wisconsin, enables
private practice medical groups and hospitals that use Epic electronic medical records, or EMR, systems to instantly share confidential medical records over the Internet, via encrypted connections. Epic includes strong security features that ensure patient information is secure and private at all times.
Care Everywhere allows a treating physician real-time access to his or her patient’s medical history, family medical history, previous diagnoses, lab tests, medications, allergies, physician’s notes and other crucial information— without having to wait for medical records to be transferred from one facility to another.
If you find yourself being treated in another facility, please ask if they are part of Care Everywhere.
