Jessica Kim Cohen - Print  | 

Epic's patient portal now contains evidence-based clinical information from Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic.

Patients with access to the Epic patient portal can view articles, slideshows and videos on more than 4,000 clinical topics, including symptoms, conditions, diseases and healthy living resources, with new content added on a weekly basis. The information, which is provided in English and Spanish, is based on original health information from Mayo Clinic.

Patients can access Mayo Clinic health information tailored to the diagnoses and results presented in their chart by clicking on keywords within Epic's MyChart web portal and MyChart Bedside inpatient tablet applications. This information might target health maintenance, medications or results review.
