About EpicCare Link
myMosaic EpicCare Link securely connects nurses, care teams, managers and providers, such as referring physicians, to a secure web portal that provides the information you need to help manage your patient's care. If someone you serve receives care at any Mosaic Life Care location, EpicCare Link gives you the tools to stay connected with their care. Review patient charts, engage in two-way secure messaging with Mosaic care teams and complete other tasks. One of the greatest benefits of utilizing EpicCare Link is improved continuity of care in our communities.
What EpicCare Link Can Do For You
Easier Patient Referrals
EpicCare Link provides the ability to place orders — such as lab, radiology and referrals — into Mosaic's system, while allowing the referring provider to maintain a role in the coordination of patient care.
Real Time Updates
Stay informed about your patient's care — automatic messages allow you the ability to see the latest information about care your patient is receiving. You receive "In Basket" messages when an event involves one of your patients. Examples of events include Emergency Department (ED) arrivals, admissions and discharges.
"In Basket," Epic's integrated task management and communication system, provides a solution for secure electronic communication between Mosaic and community care teams. EpicCare Link users can view messages they receive and can perform actions on those messages.
View Patient Records
EpicCare Link provides secure access to your patient's medical record — demographics, results, notes, problem lists, inpatient summaries, current medications and document uploads.
