Beginning this week, clinicians will see several new Best Practice Advisories (BPAs) in Epic@UNC. Decision Support, via BPAs, is intended to assist clinicians in improving performance and patient outcomes for certain high-priority health conditions.

The new BPAs, which perform and appear similar to the previously released pneumococcal vaccine BPA, also ensure we reach Stage 2 Meaningful Use requirements regarding the implementation of five clinical decision support interventions related to four or more Meaningful Use clinical quality measures.

The five new BPAs this week are:

  • Influenza vaccination (pediatrics and adult)
  • Pneumococcal vaccination (already released)
  • Tobacco abuse intervention and documentation
  • Obesity (percentile-based) counseling and documentation (pediatric)
  • Obesity (per BMI) counseling and documentation (adult)

If you have questions or issues using these new BPAs, contact the ISD Service Desk at 984-974-4357 or submit a ticket using HEAT Cloud.
