EHR Objective 8: Patient Electronic Access (VDT)This information applies to EHR Modified Stage 2 for Program Years 2015 to 2018. For current information, see:
Measure 1: More than 50% of all unique patients seen by the provider during the reporting period are granted access to the Patient Portal within four business days so they can view online, download, or transmit their health information. This measure requires setting up the Patient Portal.
Measure 2: More than 5% of patients seen by the provider during the reporting period (or authorized representative) view, download, or transmit to a third party his/her health information during the reporting period.

ElectronicCopy (measure 2):
Set up the Patient Portal Feature. You can set up the portal yourself using our instructions or contact Open Dental to schedule a setup appointment.
Workflow Recommendation: To ensure patients are counted towards the ElectronicCopy measure, we recommend setting up a location in your office where patients can log-in to the portal right after you grant access. This can work as a training tool so you can verify patients know how to log in, and patients can ask questions. While in your office, have the patient view or download their patient record.
