UVA’s EpicCare gives you comprehensive information about your patients’ visits to UVA, including lab results, radiology reports, clinic notes and discharge summaries.

To view records, your patients must name you as their referring physician when they visit UVA. Referring providers who are listed as the patient’s PCP have ongoing access to the patient's data with no time limits. However, if the provider is listed as a referring provider on the patient record, the provider will have only 6 months of access to the patient record.

UVA representatives will come to your practice to install the system and train staff.
