Viewing the Summary Care Record

This article provides information on how to view the SCR.  You can view the SCR:

a) During the telemedicine and other CUES sessions if the patient consented to SCR and there was an SCR available (not all patients have these)
b) Via the document view icon.  However, you should only view if necessary for clinical care.

Please note that you should only view an SCR if you are involved in direct care of the patient and have a legitimate relationship to the patient.  Each access of the SCR is audited against your GOC number and access patterns and viewing recorded and assessed by our Privacy Officer.  The SCR is a highly confidential and sensitive document.  You should not print, download or share this document with anyone else or use information contained within it for anything other than clinical care.

While you are in a CUES clinical reporting session you can view the SCR while you are completing your report by selecting the SCR button on the top of the screen.  This will only be visible if an SCR has been retrieved:

Please note the date and time of the SCR to ensure that the information are up to date. Use the page buttons to scroll through the SCR at the bottom of the page.

To view an SCR outside of clinical reporting, go to the referral management page and look for the blue documents icon.

Click on this icon and you will be taken to the document screen where you can see all the documents related to your referral and if an SCR is available you can access it there.
