How to "break the glass"
Patients can choose to Opt-Out of having their medical records available in the HIE, with the exception of medical emergencies. If you click on a patient result and you are presented with the screen below, the patient has explicitly opted out. Treating clinicians can “Break the Glass” and Unlock the Consent Data.
Click on Unlock Consent Data, select the reason you are viewing the record, and click on the Break The Glass button.
We recommend you discuss with the patient the advantages/disadvantages of their records being available in the SCHIE. Patients can change their SCHIE consent status at any time. Please visit our website for additional information and patient SCHIE consent forms at:
