You can promote that your practice is using the My Health Record by putting a badge on your website (see sample below). Note that the National Health Services Directory (NHSD) will show this badge when displaying provider details if the provider is using the My Health Record. The NHSD also enables people to filter their search by this criteria. Select your preferred badge here.
