JurongHealth Campus (JHC) was the first organization in Singapore to launch Epic when it went live in 2015. Made up of Ng Teng Fong General Hospital, Jurong Community Hospital, and Jurong Medical Centre, the organization is part of the country’s Ministry of Health. JHC saved clinicians roughly 3,600 hours per year and increased the effectiveness of its CDS by optimizing just a few CDS advisories. Through this project, it saw a 60% reduction in the total number of interruptive advisories, and the percentage of advisories on which clinicians took action increased from 8% to 55%.

- Evaluated the advisories against the “CDS five rights” framework
