EPIC Update

Clinical News

EPIC go-live is on target for June 2, 2018. Shortly after the transition to EPIC, AllScripts will be read only. That means that all tasks, notes and charges for any services prior to June 2nd must be promptly completed. The deadline to complete all work in Allscripts is June 15th. This is extremely important as once AllScripts is read only (currently planned for June 16th), you will not be able to modify or add content. Once EPIC is live, the expectations for timely completion of notes and charges will change. These new expectations will be announced prior to go-live. (EPIC provides the functionality to easily track these metrics)

Training for EPIC begins mid-March and runs through May. Training coordinators have been assigned and will be responsible for signing up all users. Your training coordinator may be your supervisor or someone designated by them. Unless you are a Training Coordinator, you will not to sign yourself up for classes. Training coordinators will have all schedules and will work with their teams to select training dates to accommodate department staffing needs. In most cases, training will include on-line pre-work and hands on classroom training located throughout the WUSM campus.

Dr. Bhayani has prepared multiple video blogs (VLOG) to help users learn more about EPIC functionality To view the VLOGs visit https://www.epic1.org/WUSM and visit the Epic Website https://www.epic1.org for more information.
