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
Currently, when an appointment is canceled, Epic@UNC automatically puts that newly opened slot on “Hold” if there are patients on the Waitlist who could fill that slot. Beginning Tuesday, Aug. 2, these open slots will no longer be held for patients on the Waitlist and will be open for any patient appointment that is appropriate for that slot.
Starting Tuesday, Aug. 2, the auto-search function in Cadence will search for appointments 60 days in the future (vs. 30 days).
Currently, patients receive three 'Recall' phone calls via Televox (the vendor for telephone appointment reminders) to remind the patient to schedule an appointment that is due. Starting Tueday, Aug 2, patients will receive a single phone call 30 days in advance of the target appointment date.
Beginning Friday, Aug. 5, ambulatory clinic patients with a calculated ‘Abnormal’ BMI (based on recommended clinical guidelines) will see BMI definitions and recommended lifestyle changes included within the ‘Additional Plan of Care Education’ section of their After Visit Summary (AVS).
