Providing Instructions to Patients

We've created some content to help your organization use our brand to provide patients with instructions for using MyLinks and FHIR.


Per Medicare Promoting Interoperability Program for Eligible Hospitals, Eligible Clinicians, and Critical Access Hospitals, participants are expected to provide patients with detailed instructions on how to authenticate their access through the FHIR API and provide the patient with supplemental information on available applications that leverage the FHIR API. At MyLinks, we've found the best way to meet this rule is to post some instructions about the FHIR applications your health organization is connected to near the information about your patient portal. Here are some examples to help you implement.

We recommend posting information about MyLinks near patient portal information on your organization's website. A patient portal account is required for importing medical records into MyLinks. Additionally, some organizations choose to also send an email with information about MyLinks to patients.

Below are three great examples showing how you can post information about MyLinks on your patient portal informational page or provide in an email to your patients.  Feel free to borrow verbiage and modify accordingly.

What does it mean to connect health apps to your personal health information?
In order to get the most out of health apps, they will often request personal health information.
