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
The ‘Reason for Consult’ for the ‘Inpatient Consult for Ostomy Nurse’ and ‘Inpatient Consult for Wound Nurse’ orders will change on Tuesday, Oct. 4. If either of these consult orders is included on your personal preference list, please remove the order and add it back after 5 p.m. Oct. 4 to ensure the new, correct options are displayed.
Please review the workflow that can be used to schedule appointments from an order. Scheduling patients for after-discharge, follow-up appointments encourages patients to continue with their care and often prevents readmissions to the hospital.
The Epic@UNC team has received several questions about the inpatient Flu Screening ‘Best Practice Advisory’ (BPA) that was activated Sept. 21 in Epic@UNC. Please review the algorithm, full details, and changes from previous years.
Following the planned Epic@UNC downtime (from 3 - 4:30 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 2), users will notice the following updates.
