Duke University Health System has joined a growing national Open Notes initiative to improve patient-physician communication and support our ongoing work to promote patient-centered care.
Beginning February 1, 2016, outpatient progress notes documented in Duke Maestro Care will be shared with patients via Duke MyChart. Duke Health patients will only be able to access progress notes that are documented on or after Feb. 1, 2016, and patients will only see the note after the encounter is closed.
Notes from the Department of Psychiatry, Sexual Assault, and Child Abuse and Neglect teams will not be shared with patients.
