Care Everywhere also allows your doctor to request and view your records during a scheduled office visit. This saves you time and improves the continuity of care.
When visiting a health care facility outside of the UT Physicians and UTHealth Houston network, the biggest benefit is that Care Everywhere gives health care providers secure access to your medical information to help them make important medical decisions regarding your care. Exchanging health information between medical organizations is traditionally a time-consuming process. With Care Everywhere, your health information can be transmitted electronically in a matter of seconds. Your UT Physicians and UTHealth Houston providers will also have the most updated medical information so we can better meet your health care needs during your next scheduled visit with us.
Your health care providers at UT Physicians, UTHealth Houston, and affiliate care providers that you have a relationship with can view your medical information.
Patient health information includes information on your personal electronic health record. Shared information may include allergies, medications, medical history, immunizations, patient visit summaries, test results, and diagnoses.
