GE Centricty 10 EMR and Clinic Virtualization
All our UAMS Regional Family Medicine Clinics have been actively moving toward total virtualization. During this process all UAMS Regional Centers have upgraded to the Centricity 10 EMR. Pilots have begun at the UAMS Centers and all the Directors and staff have been working vigorously to implement ePrescribing, CareManager, and Patient Portal/Secure Messaging.
- ePrescribing is a prescriber’s ability to electronically send an accurate, error-free and understandable prescription directly to a pharmacy from the point-of-care and is an important element in improving the quality of patient care.
- CareManager is a patient registry system for chronic disease management. Ten modules in all will be implemented. The emphasis of these activities is to improve chronic disease management. This new QI model will provide standardized reports on all QI standards on a regular basis across the UAMS Regional Centers system.
- Patient Portals enable healthcare organizations to provide online health services and education for patients. Some of the common online services that all of the UAMS Regional Centers will be able to offer are patient enrollment, pre-visit or other health forms, and e-visits. By providing these services online all the UAMS Regional Centers will be able to enable consumer-centered care by improving information accessibility and by streamlining workflows within their organization.
