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
Effective Wednesday, Dec. 17, care plans and patient education titles will automatically populate via a Best Practice Advisory (BPA) for patients 18 years and older who have any of the following diagnoses on their active hospital problem list.
Beginning Friday, Dec. 12, the Patient Lookup tool in Epic@UNC will display a new field for "Service Area." This new field will automatically default to "UNCHCS Service Area," so no action is required of users.
Effective Friday, Dec. 12, for those placing surgery orders or ordering medications in Epic@UNC, "On Call to OR" will no longer be available as a choice for medication frequency. The new phrase is "For OR Use," which can be found beginning Dec. 12 even if you search for "On Call to OR."
To ensure we most effectively and efficiently manage internal and external referrals using Epic@UNC and our operational processes, UNC Health Care’s Senior Leadership Team and Epic@UNC’s Steering Committee have commissioned a Referrals & Access Leadership Team that is charged with developing standards, verifying supporting workflows, and establishing common metrics.
