In an effort to standardize care for very low birth weight infants in the NICU, Sharp Health Care created an evidence based tube feeding advancement paper protocol. Sharp teamed up with Cerner to embed the protocol in the standard workflow through a leading-edge development partnership. This session examines the project from its initial inception to the go-live and beyond. Lessons learned, outcomes data, and future development are also discussed.
