Health Record Access Warning
There are various risks involved when you agree to give access to your health record to a third-party consumer application. Our electronic medical record vendor, Cerner, will now be allowing any consumer application to access your health record when you request it.
There are several trust levels that will be used to gauge how safe the application is for you to use. You will see this information when you set up your application access at the top of the screen.
Trust Levels may be any one of the following:
- Validated: The app is Cerner-validated
- Not Validated: The app is not Cerner-validated but does have a website with a certificate.
- Unknown: The app has not satisfied Cerner requirements for access.
There is a potential for a serious security risk and UHS strongly advises against connecting to an app with this trust level.
Application Access to Your Health Information
When requesting access to your health information, the application will present you with the following options:
You will need to select each item to allow the app to access the document in the electronic health record. Once you click on the Allow Access button, the app will be able to search the electronic health record for this information.
