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
As you move through Epic@UNC, you may see flowsheet or navigator documentation that has $$ signs. Those rows will automatically send hospital charges to be billed. Because of that, it is critical that nursing staff (nurses, PCTs, CSTs, NAs) DO NOT document on those rows. Only those departments that send charges for billing (i.e., Respiratory Therapy, Physical/Occupational Therapy and others) are to use those rows.
ISD will perform a disaster recovery test the weekend of Feb. 6 - 8. As part of this test there will be two planned Epic@UNC downtimes that weekend.
The next Epic@UNC Go-Live is set for May 5, 2015, at outpatient facilities for Caldwell Memorial, Johnston Health, and High Point Regional.
We are pleased to announce that there is an Epic@UNC class option for Ancillary and Therapy clinicians who practice in an Ambulatory setting. This class is designed for outpatient PT, OT, SLP, Audiology therapists, case managers, nutrition and others who practice in the clinic setting and will show them how to use the Epic Ambulatory tools.
