How to Meet This Measure in Elation 

Measure 1
The numerator is currently calculated using the number of patients that have been invited to Passport Portal and patients provided MU clinical summary printouts. To satisfy this requirement, you will need to make sure to invite patients OR provide MU clinical summary printouts to patients within 4 business days of their most recent visit.
  • To learn how to invite patients to Passport, visit our page on the Patient Passport  website: FAQs about Patient Passport.
  • To print the MU clinical summary, click on the "Print Clinical Summary of Encounter (MU)" text at the bottom of the visit note. 

Measure 2
To meet this measure, one patient must have access to their patient portal AND also log into into their patient portal account. This measure is automatically tracked within ElationEMR. Once one patients registers for patient portal and logs in during the EHR reporting period, your MU Dashboard will have a green check mark next to this measure.
