Our goal during the Epic@UNC project is to create an information system across all UNC Health Care locations that has one patient ID, one problem list, one medication list, and one bill for each patient.
When fully implemented, Epic@UNC will provide a full financial, scheduling, clinical and patient portal
There is a planned Epic@UNC downtime scheduled from 3 - 4:30 a.m. on Sunday morning, Sept. 7. Epic@UNC will be down for 90 minutes while the technical team applies an update, which the team must do on a bi-monthly basis. If you are logged on to the system at that time, you will receive a message requesting that you log off.
Effective Monday, Aug. 18, 2014, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) deemed all Tramadol-containing drug products to be Controlled Substances placed into Class IV (DEA C-IV). The Epic@UNC drug database was updated to reflect this change and to default any newly written affected prescription orders to “print” rather than “e-Rx”.
The new "Pre-visit Planning" encounter type allows a user to document preparation for a patient’s upcoming visit. You can review and update relevant information, place future orders that can be released at the visit and begin documentation that can be pulled into the visit note.
For your convenience, the Epic@UNC team will place the prescriber’s DEA number on all prescription templates (controlled and non-controlled) beginning Thursday, Aug. 14.
A demo of Clinical Practice Model (CPM) care plans and the intended clinical workflow is now available in LMS.
