Training Methodology

Learning Epic@UNC involves a blended approach of e-Learning courses, hands-on classroom instruction, a post-class assessment requiring a score of 80% or better, access to a playground environment for self-initiated practice, and proficiency checks with a Super User from your work area.

Practice using the Epic@UNC Playground reinforces proficiency and confidence prior to go-live.

Providers gain production access during the Personalization and Voice Recognition Lab to customize their own profile using Smart phrases, text, commands, etc. Continuation of profile customization is an option at provider labs within hospital locations prior to the date of go-live.


e-learning, Class Registration, & Assessments

Completion of the correct role-based Training Plan (during a go-live) or Curricula (outside of a go-live) is the responsibility of each co-worker and his/her manager to ensure Epic@UNC application access is correct.

UNC Health Care's SumTotal LMS (Learning Made Simple) tracks registration, completion of e-Learning courses, class attendance, and assessment scores for demonstration of proficiency.

Role-based Training Plans in LMS

Each Training Plan or Curricula in our Catalog combines e-Learning and role-based core instructor-led courses required for access to the Epic@UNC application.  Training Plans (during go-live) and Curricula (outside of go-lives) include courses from one or more Epic@UNC Applications.

Each role-based Training Plan is configured in the LMS to assist end users with the registration process to ensure completion of each training activity to gain access to Epic@UNC.

e-Learning Courses

The Epic 2014 e-Learning courses provide an efficient method to begin learning about the Epic 2014 foundation system. These courses serve as pre-learning or prerequisites to instructor-led classes and refreshers for workflows, navigations, and functions of the Epic 2014 applications.

Take advantage of the opportunity to take as many e-Learning courses as you like while preparing for our Epic@UNC implementation.

The average duration of each e-Learning course is between five and fifteen minutes.
