Barnestorm Cloud Share


Barnestorm Cloud Share

Barnestorm Cloud Share and the Barnestorm patient portal, MyHomeChart.com, are designed to meet new Conditions of Participation requirements for sharing information with patients, providers, therapists, approved caregivers, and others involved in patient care (listed specific applicable Conditions of Participation are included at the end of this document).

A repository for all patient documents, whether lab results, signed admission forms, or any other document you previous kept in paper form - all paper documents can be scanned in to become part of the patient Electronic Health Record in Barnestorm.  

With Cloud Share, you can upload any patient document and email a secure link to anyone outside of the agency, whether patient, caregiver, therapist, provider, or physician. With MyHomeChart.com, your patients and their approved caregivers and providers can log into a portal system and view documents. Patients can check their scheduled visits and pay their bills (if private pay), as well.
