March 20, 2017, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Debbie Ochs, Director IT Applications, Sony Dhillon, Senior System Analyst, Mary Kay Shibley, MSN, RN, Clinical Informaticist, and Michael Dodson, Manager, Clinical Applications – Ambulatory EHR Support, Sharp HealthCare. Sharp Behavioral Health has been live on Cerner Millennium Powerchart in both the Inpatient and Outpatient settings since June 2010. The implementation of Cerner Powerchart Ambulatory for Sharp Behavioral Health Outpatient resulted in a consistent patient summary view, integrated provider messaging, and comprehensive medication management across all Behavioral Health sites, to ensure continuity of care for patients with behavioral health issues. Mary Kay, Sony, Debbie and Michael share their journey and describe the customization required for behavioral health care in modules such as Therapeutic Documentation, ePrescribing, Ambulatory Organizer, Dynamic Documentation and MPages. Sharp Behavioral Health also shares their positive outcomes in patient safety, documentation and workflow efficiency, medication management, and physician, patient and staff satisfaction across the continuum of care as a result of these changes.
