Care Everywhere

ALERT BAR

Care Everywhere: Now your health information can be where you are.

Care Everywhere allows doctors and nurses from different organizations to electronically exchange patient medical information in a matter of seconds.

CareEverywhere

When you visit a non-UTMB clinic or hospital, UTMB Health will be able to electronically exchange information about tests, procedures, and other information gathered during your visit.

Exchanging health information between medical organizations is traditionally a time consuming process. If you agree to have your health information transmitted electronically, your UTMB healthcare team will be able to access information from compatible organizations outside of UTMB in a matter of seconds. Your UTMB healthcare team will have access to more information about your health status. This will help them better and more efficiently meet your healthcare needs.

Only healthcare professionals involved in your care at UTMB Health can view your information.

Patient health information includes any information included on your personal electronic health record. The information that will be exchanged may include information about your:

  • Allergies
  • Medications
  • Medical, surgical, family and  social history
  • Immunizations
  • Clinic and hospital visits
  • Test results (including HIV)
  • Diagnoses (including HIV)
  • Procedures
At this time, we can only transfer your personal health record electronically to and from other organizations that use a compatible electronic health record software. (See the list of organizations using Care Everywhere at right.)
