University Access to Epic - Epic Access Partner Data (Read-Only)

For a university employee to have read-only access in Epic to data covered by the University's Epic Access Agreement with OU Health (OU Health Physicians Tulsa, John Keys Speech and Hearing Clinic) the following prerequisite steps are required:

  1. The university must add the OUHSC user name to AD groups that control access to Epic UserWeb (training) and Epic Production access. (EGL Support Ticket)
  2. OU IT staff with access to OU Health's Service Now Instance (aka Epic Informaticists) must submit a ticket to OU Health IT asking for an Epic EMP record and VIEW ONLY permissions be assigned to the OUHSC user name.

NOTE: University accounts may only access Epic for work associated with OU Health Physicians Tulsa and the John Keys clinic.  All other access to Epic will require OU Health credentials.  For information on this process, please refer to the knowledge base article titled "University Access to Epic - OU Health Data (Read-Only)"
