What is DrConnect?
Cleveland Clinic's DrConnect® is a secure, web-based tool that offers complimentary and convenient access to your patients' electronic medical records when you choose to refer to Cleveland Clinic. Connecting by phone, however, is still a necessary and important way our specialists collaborate with providers who entrust their patients to our care. DrConnect won't replace those calls. It will just enhance the great communication you're used to receiving from us.
Who Can Sign-up to Use DrConnect?
A registered physician, manager, or executive, with authority to sign agreements on behalf of the registering organization or facility must sign-up for a DrConnect account and be designated as the Site Administrator for the practice or facility. Once the Site Administrator has registered and received their Account ID, they may authorize clinical and office personnel to receive proxy security rights that would enable the identified staff to access the patient's electronic medical record within the established DrConnect account.
As a recipient of information through DrConnect, I acknowledge that the information disclosed to it through the DrConnect system will contain any and all information contained in the patient's medical record that is protected by Federal confidentiality rules relating to treatment provided by Alcohol and Drug Abuse Program (42 C.F.R. Part 2) and state law pertaining to the disclosure of HIV/AIDS information. These rules prohibit Recipient from making any further disclosure of this information unless further disclosure is expressly permitted by the written consent of the person to whom it pertains or as otherwise permitted by 42 C.F.R. Part 2 relating to the disclosure of alcohol and drug abuse program information or state law pertaining to disclosure of HIV/AIDS information.
A general authorization for the release of medical or other information is NOT sufficient for these purposes. The Federal rules restrict any use of the information to criminally investigate or prosecute any alcohol or drug abuse patient.
