What to Expect
Epic, Our New Electronic Health Record, Launched October 3
We are excited to launch Epic, our new electronic health record! You may notice us doing things differently, such as using more electronic devices and less paper. As always, your safety is our highest priority and we are here to answer any questions you may have.
If you have an upcoming appointment:
- Make sure to be at the registration desk no later than 15 minutes before your appointment. This may mean that you need to arrive at the clinic location 20–25 minutes before the appointment, so you can complete parking and entrance procedures before registration. This will help us ensure that your visit can begin on time.
- Bring your current medication list so we can check our records carefully and make sure everything is correct.
COVID-19: What to Expect for Your Child’s Safety at In-Person Appointments
We’ve made a lot of changes to our facilities to protect our patients, families and staff from covid-19. Watch what to expect at your clinic visit during your COVID-19 (video). Learn more about safety measures we have in place.
- Fax us records. Ask your child’s primary care provider to fax us records about your child’s overall health and growth. Fax to 206-985-3371.
- Provide test results related to your child’s condition. Most of the time, the doctor who refers you to Seattle Children’s will send copies of imaging studies, lab results, pathology slides and other helpful information. Ask your doctor to send them or bring copies.
