The NewYork-Presbyterian, Weill Cornell Medicine and Columbia Doctors voluntary provider group and
community based provider collaborators have the ability to request Epic access for themselves and their office staff. The NY Consortium Site agreement must be signed by the provider and sponsor prior to requesting Epic access.
Please see the two options for access below and complete the process for your appropriate selection.
Sponsors are internal Columbia, Weill Cornell Medicine or NewYork-Presbyterian staff who will function as the point person for the
community based provider and practices. Sponsors will help ensure that users will follow protected health information guidelines when given access to Epic tools. Sponsors can assist with the request of CWIDs, register users for training in the Saba system and confirm continued access on an annual basis. The following roles can qualify as a Sponsor:
You can request EpicCare Link and Hyperspace access for clinical staff, non-clinical staff and office administrators in your practice. Since you and your clinical staff will have access to patients' medical records, the NY Consortium Site Agreement will need to be signed, EpicTogether training completed, electronically signing the terms and conditions, and abiding by rules of patient confidentiality. There is a limit of two staff members per provider who can be given access to Epic.
who perform procedures, supervise patients or round at the hospital should use
Epic Hyperspace. Community providers who do not perform functions in the
hospital and want access to patient charts should use EpicCare Link. Community
providers with a formal affiliation with the Consortium (e.g., those with
adjunct faculty appointment) will receive full Link access. Community providers
who do not have formal affiliation with the Consortium will only be able to
place orders for labs/radiology/outpatient services referral, and will only see
lab/radiology results of the orders they place.
