May 14, 2019

EpicCare Link is a web-based provider portal for Texas Children’s that gives referring physicians and their staff secure and convenient access to the hospital’s electronic medical record (EMR).

Texas Children’s EpicCare Link can be used by:

  • Staff at practices that are not part of Texas Children’s but whose providers are active, courtesy or consulting members of the Texas Children’s Hospital medical staff.
    Community providers, including Texas Children’s adjunct medical staff and their staff.

Once registered and logged in to Texas Children’s EpicCare Link, referring physicians can access important information about their patient’s care at Texas Children’s, including discharge, consult and operative reports, imaging reports, lab results, medication use, and family history of their patient.

EpicCare Link users can also receive correspondence and messages from Texas Children’s physicians and can view and receive notifications about inpatient admissions, discharges, emergency room encounters, urgent care visits, and view upcoming appointments at the touch of a button.
