A recent study published in BMJ Quality & Safety, University of Michigan researchers analyzed over 500 thousand e-prescriptions and found that 83.8% of all sigs needed to be manually edited in some way to improve readability.
Please join the WIEUG and DrFirst where we discuss the root causes of unstructured data, and how artificial intelligence can be leveraged to improve patient safety and improve medication adherence by automating the transcription of medications and sig data into the Epic EHR so that clinicians don't need to waste valuable time manually entering meds.
We'll also provide an introduction to easy-to-implement in-workflow enhancements that will boost your provider and patient satisfaction. These will include:
Since the initial startup of the Wisconsin Epic Users Group (WIEUG), the premise has always been collaboration. Through partnerships, contacts and sharing of trials and tribulations, we have grown stronger as a system and our organizations have benefited from the collective knowledge. Looking forward to the renewed interest and transformation.
