Northwestern Medicine EpicCare Link

Northwestern Medicine offers Qualifying Organizations the opportunity to obtain necessary medical record information for continuity of care and billing through an Internet-based access to our medical records system called EpicCare Link.

Qualifying Organizations are organizations that share a common patient with the hospital and have been approved by the hospital to receive access. Some examples of the types of organizations that would qualify are: physician offices, nursing homes, third-party billers, and home health agencies.
