Care Everywhere

Care Everywhere ensures your health information is available wherever you are. It allows your health information to be securely exchanged between healthcare providers using electronic medical records.

If you are traveling and need medical attention, or if you regularly visit two providers in different healthcare organizations, Care Everywhere can benefit you. Healthcare providers in different organizations can easily access your information when they need it if their organizations participate with Care Everywhere.

See the complete list of healthcare organizations participating in Care Everywhere.

How Does Care Everywhere Work?

If you or your legally authorized representative agree to the electronic release of your health information, a secure link can be established between healthcare organizations, allowing clinicians there to access your records. This enables your health team to obtain more complete information that will help them meet your needs in a safe, effective and timely manner.

How Long Is My Authorization Valid?

Your consent to electronically release your health information through Care Everywhere remains effective until midnight after your appointment or hospital discharge. The information received by any of the participating health care organizations may also be used to provide care for you in the future. Only health professionals involved in your care are able to see your health information.

Each healthcare organization will use and maintain the information according to its own policies. The participating organizations may disclose some or all of the information if it pertains to your care plan. By signing the authorization, you indicate your understanding that information released because of this authorization may be released as permitted by law.

What Information Will Be Shared Electronically?

The information available depends on each organization’s Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system. It may include:

  • Allergies
  • Medications Medical, Surgical, Family and Social History
  • Immunizations
  • Clinic and Hospital Visits
  • Test Results (Including HIV)
  • Diagnoses (Including HIV)
  • Procedures

Can I Choose Where My Health Information Is Sent?

Yes. We will obtain information only from the organizations that you name in the signed authorization. Please note that when you name an organization, all of its locations are included.

What Is the Difference Between Care Everywhere and Altru Critical Access Hospital Partners?

Altru's Critical Access Hospital Partners connect to and use Altru’s Epic Electronic Medical Record (EMR). There is no need to use Care Everywhere with these organizations, since their data is already in our system. Examples of Altru’s Critical Access Hospital Partners include LifeCare Medical Center in Roseau, Minn., Cavalier County Memorial Hospital and Clinics in Langdon, N.D., and First Care Health Center in Park River, ND.

How Does Care Everywhere Work With the Mayo Clinic Care Network?

Currently, the electronic exchange of medical information to Mayo Clinic is not possible through Care Everywhere Network. However, information can still be exchanged with other Mayo Clinic facilities because of our involvement in the Mayo Clinic Care Network.
