All Progress Notes To Be Electronic June 30
Physicians working in North Kansas City Hospital will be entering all Progress Notes electronically by June 30, 2015. Many have already converted from paper to electronic notes. This Medical Executive Committee-approved initiative dovetails with the larger Power Up program, a clinical initiative that integrates today’s technology hospital-wide to help clinical staff deliver optimal patient care. Power Up is scheduled to go live August 24, 2015.
Computerized Progress Notes is the most notable change affecting physicians, whose work processes underwent major changes in 2012 with Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE).
Power Up EMR will allow:
- Timely communication with nursing and other disciplines
- Increased visibility of important patient information
- Remote viewing
