    Hi All,

    For those of you on Epic, will you speak to me about your utilization of Break the Glass? We're reviewing our current set up to make it most meaningful for compliance and audit purposes. Further, it will be a huge satisfer with our providers.

    Currently, our providers are required to BTG every time that they access a record with "privacy requested" or meeting one of the other BTG rules. In addition to reviewing our rules, we're looking at allowing the glass to "stay broken" for a certain amount of time after the initial break.

    I'm trying to gauge industry standard while aligning with organizational policy to allow the glass to "stay broken for X hours after the initial Break" .

    How long do you have BTG configured to "stay broken" for after the initial break?

    Thanks!

    FYI, decision made. We are going to align BTG with our practice management expectations of the timeline to close the encounter.
