Inpatient Staff: CPM Care Plan and Education Upgrade Following Nov. 5 Downtime

CPM Care Plan & Education templates will be upgraded to their Spring 2017 versions on Nov. 5 during the planned Epic@UNC downtime. Staff will not need to do anything different with charting until Nov. 19.

Beginning Nov. 19, the following steps must be performed for every patient admitted PRIOR to the Nov. 5 downtime:

  1. Resolve each care plan (except the Restraint care plans) using the Resolved for Upgrade goal outcome option.
  2. Resolve each education title (except the Restraint and First-Dose education titles) using the Resolved for Upgrade reason. 
  3. In the Care Plan activity, apply the new Patient Care Overview template.  Apply each of the individual plans of care that were previously on the chart, as well as any new ones that need to be applied. 
  4. In the Education activity, check to see that an education title exists for each active care plan. Add independent education titles as needed.
  5. Access the Patient Care Overview – Plan of Care Review goal and write a note explaining why the care plans were resolved and reapplied.

Details for these steps, along with a list of the new care plans, can be found in the CPM Upgrade Guide.
