Interdisciplinary teams from Kalkaska Memorial Health Center, Mercy Hospital Cadillac, Mercy Hospital Grayling, Munson Medical Center, and Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital have worked to create a standardized, safe, well-coordinated and well-communicated discharge process supported by the Electronic Health Record (EHR).
The iPATH project will:
- Create, obtain, and maintain an accurate and timely electronic patient medication list.
- Enhance the EHR to support clinician workflows that provide real-time monitoring of actionable data and meet regulatory requirements for Clinical Quality Measures (CQM).
- Develop clinical decision support interventions to enhance clinical quality, and support accurate data collection for the CQMs.
- Meet regulatory requirements for Meaningful Use Stage 2 related to medication reconciliation, the discharge process, clinical decision support interventions, and clinical quality measures.
