- Provides the highest level of clinical integration available.
Broad sharing of clinical information is the major advantage of using an Epic EMR
in our community through Symphony Community Connect. This mean no more lost time
waiting for faxed reports, or in trying to sort out sketchy patient descriptions
of medications they are taking prescribed by another provider, or vague details
about previous health care events. Information such as lab results, allergies, diagnoses,
surgery reports & surgery history, medications, immunizations, imaging results,
and emergency department visits, is available to all physicians using any Epic product
through Kettering Health Network. Sharing of clinical information provides optimal
quality and integration in patient care while helping to reduce unnecessary services
and cost. Individual physician effectiveness improves with better clinical information
at the point of service. We call this the One Patient, One Record
Through Epic Everywhere, you can simply request information from other Epic facilities
besides Kettering Health Network whether the facility is in your own back yard or
across the US, and even in many foreign countries. If your patient has an Epic record
anywhere, you can ask to see important clinical information pertaining to them.
Through Epic Anywhere, you can request important clinical information of patients
with data housed in participating non-Epic systems. This kind of data exchange makes
the dream of patient data sharing for optimal patient care a reality, while taking
care to employ the deepest security approach available.

- Gives the practice physician-developed, high-productivity tools such as
Chart Review, Best Practice Alerts, SmartPhrases, SmartText and SmartSets to improve
Epic tools for optimizing workflow are among the industry’s most notable. They are
designed to make documenting in an electronic medical record, as streamlined as
possible. Further, this approach provides valuable standardization in clinical practice.
Any EMR from any vendor will represent a learning curve for you.
That is why Epic employs physicians who have actually practiced in the real world,
to develop these kinds of productivity tools. For example, SmartSets brings together
standard work flow approaches around a common medical condition such as GERD or
hypertension. Tasks such as, identifying a diagnosis, ordering tests & medications,
charting and level of service selection are all grouped together to keep keystrokes
at a minimum. SmartSets suggestions are triggered by chief complaints or existing
diagnosis. Also, Preference Lists, which comes as a standard, can be personalized
by the provider on the fly for frequently ordered referrals, tests or medications.
Through the Chart Review tool, you can filter on past visits based on a variety
of factors to quickly review courses of treatments, previous tests, lab results
and more. No more calling the medical records or ancillary department at the hospital
looking for results!
