We’ve updated our patient records system

On March 27, 2021, UW Medicine and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance implemented a single Epic electronic health record: EpicCare Link, a secure, online portal that provides free, password-protected access to the UW Medicine Epic electronic health record (EHR). Physicians, other licensed healthcare providers and support staff can access the medical record for patients referred to or from UW Medicine. This web-based service requires no installation on your servers or computers.

Use the new EpicCare Link for any outpatient and inpatient records beginning on March 27, 2021.

Note about historical data

Starting May 15, all historical patient data for care provided at UW Medicine up to March 27th will be stored in the Ellkay Archives, the new repository for data from legacy systems. The Ellkay Archives replaces ORCA, Soarian and MINDscape.

You will be able to access the Ellkay Archives via a link in Epic Patient Snapshot.  No additional sign-in is needed to access the Ellkay Archives. When you click the Ellkay Archives button, it will open the same patient from Epic.

Available through EpicCare

EpicCare Link provides access to the records of patients at:

  • Harborview Medical Center
  • Seattle Cancer Care Alliance
  • UW Medical Center – Montlake
  • UW Medical Center – Northwest
  • UW Neighborhood Clinics

Records from Valley Medical Center and Seattle Children's Hospital may be available if they have been previously queried through Care Everywhere. If records from those sites have not been queried, they will not be available, and external users will need to gain access to EpicCare Link directly through Valley or Seattle Children's system.

Records may include:

  • Patient encounters
  • Progress notes
  • Lab results
  • Medication lists
  • Radiology reports
  • Radiology scans and images
