Current Work:

  • Committee champions asked whether Tube Feedings can be scannable in the MAR; this has been an issue consistently raised in rounds. PCS Informatics is working to solve this issue and will update the committee on their work.

  • Wentworth Douglass is another Partners facility that is now live with Epic. When receiving patients from WDH we do not need copies of the tests because we can view it all in Epic Chart Review.

  • There is a Partner’s workgroup working on documentation with the goal to make recommendations on the standards for nursing. We will learn their recommendations later this year.

Acomplishments 2019

  • The Informatics committee assisted in the development of the updated downtime binders, with updated forms and workflows.

  • In 2019 identified “tips and tricks”, currently active in Epic but that champions felt were underutilized on the units. We presented these ‘staff picks’ at our Collaborative Governance Fair, many were also shared as part of the continued Epic Rounding initiation on inpatient units.

2020 Goals

  • Champions will continue to look into interdisciplinary workflows, focusing on continuity with nutrition ordering, as well as documentation across floors and procedural areas.

  • Champions will assist in the goal of initiating “tap and go” technology on certain pilot units in the hospital, after the update to Windows 10.

  • Champions will assist in the transition to our new transparent acuity system, predicted for summer 2020.
