One Epic Ecosystem

On July 21 when the One Epic Ecosystem is launched, research will start using the research study record contained within EPIC.

Information on the research study record can be found in The Orchard on The Well the Research Apple on the page.

What are some of the new features we will be able to leverage in the research study record? We will be able to recruit patients via Epic MyChart, we can associate patients and encounters to an individual study, place research specific orders,  write research notes, run study reports and document adverse events within Epic and link them directly within the participant’s research study record. Lots of new features will be available to screen, recruit and follow our participants enabling us to increase enrollments and decrease lost to follow up.

Please contact Pamela Sloan, RN, BSN, Clinical Research Manager, SCTO, at 248.551.6059 or for questions.
