Collect your EHR system information
Work with your EHR vendor to have your system information ready. Collect the following:
The number of FHIR API endpoints deployed by your organization.
For every FHIR API endpoint, its patient portal URL.
If you have more than one EHR vendor, the name of each.
Confirmation that you and your organization are legally authorized to make your FHIR API endpoint available through Health Records. You might do this, for example, if another organization manages your FHIR API endpoint and EHR system.
The user name and password for a test patient account configured and provisioned for Health Records.
Note: If your EHR vendor is athenahealth, Cerner (CommunityWorks or PowerWorks), or DrChrono, you aren’t required to configure a test patient account or obtain its user name and password.
Your EHR vendor will also guide you through any EHR-specific details to make sure your organization is ready to register with Apple for Health Records. To familiarize yourself with common instructions from your vendor, see Vendor-specific guidelines for Health Records.
If your organization has multiple FHIR API endpoints from the same vendor or FHIR API endpoints from multiple EHR vendors, collect this information for every FHIR API endpoint it deploys.
