HHS, Kaiser, CVS, Providence test universal log-in for EHRs

HHS and several health systems have been testing a way for patients to access all their electronic medical records using a single sign-in.

The participating health systems include Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente, Renton, Wash.-based Providence, Los Angeles-based Cedars-Sinai, and Marshfield (Wis.) Clinic Health System. CVS Health and payer Cambia Health Solutions have also taken part in the research.

The tool is easy to use, and health systems had a high level of confidence in its user authentication, according to a March 22 report from the CARIN Alliance data exchange consortium and HHS. However, testing with more patient users is needed, and the legal, financial and cybersecurity implications have to be addressed, the report noted.
