Homecare Countdown to Epic “Go Live”

(From the August 2019 Issue of MedStat 

On October 1, Homecare will “Go Live” on Epic. All hospital clinicians will be able to follow their Homecare patients in Epic and view most recent notes regarding home visits for Homecare and Hospice nursing, therapy, and social work. For Pharmacy-only and HME-only patients, follow-up with the referring physicians and staff will continue to be via secure fax and phone. 

This Epic “Go Live” is the culmination of many years of discussion and months of planning and preparation. Over the next few months, we will provide updates regarding the Epic rollout on ANCHOR, MedStat and on the Homecare page.  

In addition to Homecare being included on all Payor Plans, we believe the Epic “Go Live” is one more step forward in working as One Team with physicians both on campus and in the community to provide Best Patient Care.
