Care Every­where Opt-Out

DuPage Med­ical Group (DMG) par­tic­i­pates in Epic’s Care Every­where to share your med­ical record via secure, encrypt­ed con­nec­tions. This enables your treat­ing provider(s) to access your health infor­ma­tion when you are receiv­ing care out­side of DMG. This infor­ma­tion shared includes your med­ical his­to­ry, pre­vi­ous diag­noses, test results (i.e. labs and imag­ing), cur­rent med­ica­tions, aller­gies, and progress notes. This con­nec­tion allows for real-time access with­out hav­ing to wait for records to be trans­ferred between facilities.

You may opt out if you do not want your record shared with your treat­ing provider(s) through Care Every­where. If you
opt out, you also have the right to opt back in at any time. To opt-out of Care Every­where, please com­plete the below form.
