- From the open encounter, navigate to your Care Everywhere activity (this may be displayed as an activity tab or found under the More button) then select Request Outside Records.
- Texas Children’s Hospital may already be linked to your patient. If not, select Query New Organization, type Texas Children’s Hospital, select it and enter your Epic password if prompted.
- If a matching patient record is found, it appears. Demographic information is highlighted so that you can verify patient details before proceeding.If a result isn’t an exact match, you might need to contact Texas Children’s Hospital
