At Cornwall Community Hospital (CCH), it's common for physicians to wear multiple hats. In some cases, an emergency department physician may also work as a resuscitationist and fill in with other roles, such as hospitalist, as needed. With manual processes and limited functionality to address differences in roles and last-minute switches, CCH was challenged with routine operational burden and needed a tool within the electronic health record (EHR) to help improve efficiency. Learn how the Role Profiles functionality helps physicians at CCH more seamlessly switch positions, which has improved clinician satisfaction and allowed the organization to be more nimble with redeploying resources. Discover how CCH became a validation partner for Role Profiles and learn about the project plan to move this forward to production as the first site to use the functionality outside the US.
PowerOrders and PowerPlans are a core EHR function that drive accurate and timely delivery of care. The powerful customization tools provided by Oracle Cerner allow clients to tailor the ordering experience to the needs of their health system. This customization creates a litany of end user experiences based on each site’s design choices and technical expertise. Jakob Nielsen set forth 10 usability heuristics for user interface design—five of which our multi-d team applied to our local feature configuration: consistency & standards; error prevention; recognition rather than recall; flexibility & efficiency of use; and aesthetic & minimalist design. By applying these heuristic principles, we optimized our order set design. In this session, we discuss how the process was applied to blood transfusion, pediatric, and vascular order sets.
