Digital Services updates



    As our One Epic Ecosystem draws near, I wanted to let you know that your legacy east user-level SmartPhrases will be converted to the Corewell Health instance if used at least one time in the six months leading up to integration in July 2024. 

    Additionally, there will be personalization labs where our physicians and other clinicians can sit down with a digital services team member to set up customizations for various Epic tools and workspaces as needed. I will continue to share more news and specifics as they are available.

    This week, I have a few updates for you:

    • Epic Electronic Prescribing Controlled Substances to require additional security
    • Performance snapshots for employed physicians
    • Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event – Oct. 7
    • Wellness Wednesday: Trust in medicine
    • Documentation Tips of the Week: Atrial fibrillation

    Currently, Corewell Health East providers must verify their identity with Duo multifactor authentication when prescribing controlled substances electronically in Epic. The DEA requires two separate authentication factors when signing a controlled substance prescription to ensure the right person electronically prescribes the controlled substance. To comply with the DEA, starting Tuesday, Oct. 3, Corewell Health East providers began being be prompted to enter their Epic password when electronically sending the prescription, followed by verifying their identity using multifactor authentication via Duo. If you have any questions, please contact the DS Service Desk.

    On Sunday, Oct. 1, human resources launched the Performance Snapshot process for employed physicians in Workday throughout Corewell Health. As the Performance Snapshot process provides valuable feedback, all employed physicians at Corewell Health will be required to participate. This process will occur over the next few months, beginning with the self-evaluation step in October. Prepare now by reviewing the FAQresource guide and the performance and development overview article.

    Join us Saturday, Oct. 7 for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer at Hart Plaza in Detroit. The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the nation’s largest and most impactful breast cancer movement, and you can be part of it by joining the group for a walk. Corewell Health is the proud sponsor of the event. For more information, including registration, please view the flyer.

    Until next week,
