Precise ID Embedded in Epic MyChart
This new rapid response implementation is driven by best practices embedded in Epic MyChart®. Precise ID offers several operational benefits including streamlining patient portal enrollment, eliminating manual work processes for staff, and preventing long call center wait times for patients.
