University of Miami Hospital Implements State-of-the-Art Electronic Medical Record System

 

University of Miami Hospital (UMH) is significantly transforming its patient care experience by upgrading its electronic medical record (EMR) system to UChart. This will mark the final phase of the University’s creation of a true enterprise-level EMR, and implementation is on schedule to be completed in October 2017.  

A significant shift for healthcare providers at UMH will be the transition from Meditech and paper documentation to fully electronic medical records. To ensure this transition has minimal inconvenience to current workflows, the UHealth Information Technology (IT) implementation team is leveraging best practices from previous implementations at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute and Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.  

Additionally, the UHealth IT training team has developed role-based training tracks for nurses, physicians, and staff at UMH. This streamlined approach was developed to minimize impact on day-to-day operations and will offer all healthcare providers the knowledge, tools, and access needed to effectively use UChart.
