Specialty EMR Views

Specialty EMR Visits

The EMR is an integral part of the physician’s workflow. The feedback from our providers clearly indicates that the initial “one size fits all” design of the user interface is no longer sufficient.

In 2012, Cerner introduced the first Physician Playbook to tailor the EMR to the needs of the provider based on his or her specialty and venue. Since then, the Tiger Institute’s Physician Localization and Optimization Workgroup (PhLOW) has teamed up with Cerner’s physician experience group to implement many of the available Physician Playbooks at MU Health Care.

To date, we have updated eight provider specialties with new security positions in Family and Community Medicine, Dermatology, Nephrology, and Orthopaedic Surgery. These new positions are optimized for efficient navigation and performance, and designed to allow both the user and specialty service the maximum in customizable options and specialty views.

The PhLOW team expects to have implemented additional Playbooks by January 2015 to give six more specialties their customized EMR view.

We were able to push the capabilities of PowerChart to enhance the user experience and efficiency for our providers. I hope our experiences can serve as a model for future roll outs.
