Pain Management, Phase II

9/9/15 | September

The new and improved Pain Management Summary MPage pilot commenced with a concentrated effort to engage Oncology Unit nurses and Palliative Care providers. Feedback was incorporated into the solution to provide supplemental data that assist providers in assessing the pain management efforts, medication titration needs, and patient expectations of pain management.

Update: In the month of October, the new Pain Management Summary was reviewed over 1,000 times.  Our top two physician champions collectively reviewed the Pain Management Summary during pre-rounding exercises with their care teams 96 times.

Depart Medication Education

9/3/15 | Create Innovations, September

Depart Medication Education provides a single location in the EHR where a clinician can view the patient’s inpatient and home medications, match them appropriately, and identify the date/time of the last dose given.  Much of this is automated, such as matching the medications and providing the last dose date and time.  This information then populates the depart summary so it is available to the patient upon discharge and recorded in the health record.

The goal of this project is to improve compliance with medication education at patient depart by automating the step to scan the handwritten notes shared with a patient into his or her EHR.

Update: November, 2015 – A little more than two months into the go-live, University Hospital (with MOI) is at 62% compliance, moving toward a goal that 90% of discharges will have the medication education completed. This up from 19.5% for the same time frame in October.
