We are approaching the final weeks of preparation for Epic. A few key points you need to keep in mind as you get ready for go-live. Epic will not be available to end users until ALL training is complete. This includes classroom training and personalization labs. There are no exceptions so please keep this in mind, especially if you are unable to attend your scheduled session as you must make arrangements to reschedule. Please note: SABA is the source of truth for the location of personalization labs. Rooms have been reassigned and you may not have received an updated calendar invite with the correct location. So be safe and check SABA.
Information will pertain to your career development specific to the department of pediatrics. Please note, this is in addition to the July 9th Pediatric Administration and August 7th Faculty Affairs orientations. You are encouraged to attend all 3 programs as they offer different information. You will receive information about each orientation from the respective group.

Aimee was born in Oregon, in a tiny coastal town (population 1000) so remote there was no radio or TV station. There, she developed an early interest in caring for sick newborns when her very first pet– a feral kitten she adopted– developed encephalitis. Her mother treated the kitten with IM penicillin and syringe feeds, and the patient survived with a normal lifespan, albeit with some cranial nerve deficits. Although the beauty of the southern Oregon Coast is unparalleled, opportunities in that region were limited.

Rates of autism continue to rise, new data indicate
New statistics indicate rates of autism in children have continued to increase. However, the rates have increased only modestly, suggesting there may be a leveling off. Still, researchers found that many children aren’t getting diagnosed until age 4 or older. The older a child is at diagnosis, the harder it is for health-care professionals to intervene and change the trajectory of autism spectrum disorder.
Congratulations to Leonard Bacharier, Amy Clark, Paul Hruz, David Hunstad, and Gregory Storch.
