EpicCare® Link at UConn Health
Important Information Regarding Your Epic Portal
EpicCare Link at UConn Health is a secure Web portal that offers referring providers easy access to information stored in our EHR regarding their referred and admitted patients.
There is no cost to access the portal, it's easy to set up and there’s no software or hardware to maintain. EpicCare Link is available 24/7 via any computer with an Internet connection and an up-to-date browser. Supported browsers include, Chrome version 50 or later, Microsoft Edge version 79 or later, and Internet Explorer version 11.
As your patients receive care from any one of our locations, we’ll send you notifications and updates via email and In Basket, Epic's secure communication platform. Notifications will be sent weekly when you have new information available. This will provide you with the information you need to plan your patients’ ongoing care, and they’ll feel better knowing that you’re up to speed on all the care they receive.
We’ll notify you to log in to see:
- Narrative test results
- Hospital admissions
- Discharge summaries
- Recent visit summaries with our providers
- Lab results
- Consultation notes
- Orders placed by our physicians
… and more.
Your EpicCare Link account also offers access to Epic’s In Basket, a secure patient-centered communication tool in which you can connect directly with UConn Health Providers to ask questions or receive updates.
Providers with EpicCare Link accounts can place lab orders to be completed at UConn Health from within Link. You can also view results and send result messages, creating a seamless care plan for your patients.
Long term care facility users can accept discharge placement requests from UConn Health case managers and communicate with case managers via Epic's In Basket. This new workflow will eliminate the need for faxing patient information from UConn to facilities for discharge planning and placement.
