The 21st Century Cures Act is a federal mandate that requires health organizations to provide patients with timely access to their electronic health information. In compliance with the Cures Act and effective April 11, 2021, Duke Health will immediately release the majority of clinical notes (inpatient and outpatient) as well as laboratory, pathology, and imaging results to patients via their Duke MyChart accounts. There are options for not sharing and/or delaying release but this requires documentation of a specific reason. Training sessions are linked in this document. Uploaded 04.02.21
