Should I let MSK see my health records through both Healthix and Carequality?

Yes. We strongly encourage you to give your consent (permission) for us to see your health information through Healthix. You don’t have to do anything to see your health information through Carequality. We can give you better care if you let MSK see your health records from your other providers through both Healthix and Carequality. That’s because some providers don’t use Healthix, while others don’t use Carequality.
