How do you know if your practice is actively using electronic tools to support care delivery?
Ask: Does the practice use an e-tool (patient portal or other e-connectivity technology) that is accessible to both patients and clinicians and that shares information such as test results, medication list, vitals, and other information and patient record data?

What is the intent of the E-Tool Use Metric?
Intent: The intent of this metric is to have an electronic tool that allows patients to access their medical record and have an easy, direct way to communicate with providers.
