Departments and Ancillaries
Emergency Department ASAP Emergency Department Information System streamlines workflows and helps improve care delivery in busy emergency departments. Because it's integrated with Epic's other clinical applications, it combines instant access to comprehensive patient information with active decision-support functionality. ASAP clients dramatically reduce their wait times and transcription costs while providing faster, better care.
Inpatient Pharmacy Willow Inpatient Pharmacy System is a key component of Epic's "closed-loop" medication ordering and administration process, linking pharmacists, ordering physicians and nurses to a single order record. With Willow, pharmacists can monitor medication treatment and improve medical outcomes, improving patient safety, minimizing adverse effects and helping control costs. Orders from EpicCare flow directly to Willow for verification and dispensing and also appear automatically on the MAR. Pharmacy staff have direct access to the chart during verification, empowering them to play a more active role in patient care, and verified orders can be routed to the appropriate dispensing device or to pharmacies outside the system. Changes made by a pharmacist are also automatically updated and available for other users. (Note: Willow was formerly known as "EpicRx")
