Please note: Some resources below require you to login to the CRIO help center to get access.
Step 1: Watch the Comprehensive Demo

Step 2: Read the Manual
This written material covers all functionality and will serve as a resource for any team members that need to pull medical records. (10 minutes to complete)
Step 3: Implement a Medical Information Authorization Form
In order to use the Medical Records API, you will need to implement a medical information authorization form. There are two options for doing this. If you already have a form in place, you will need to amend it to include this language:
“The information released in response to this authorization may be re-disclosed to other Business Associates.”
The second option is to use this template to obtain permission from patients during the consent process. In short, you will need to inform the patient that a third party vendor will have access to their medical records and to get their permission to obtain these records on their behalf. (5 minutes to complete)
Step 4: Review and Implement an SOP for Use of the CRIO Medical Records API
We have prepared an SOP that will cover your use of the Medical Records API at your site. Reviewing and implementing this SOP will take about 10 minutes to complete.
Step 5: Read Our Data Protection Impact Assessment (EU ONLY)
Under GDPR, CRIO, as a processor, acts on behalf of the controller (you). When selecting a processor, controllers must use only processors that provide sufficient guarantees of their abilities to implement the technical and organizational measures necessary to meet the requirements of the GDPR. CRIO maintains a data protection impact assessment of its platform that can be made available to the controller to demonstrate its compliance with the GDPR.
