Get the Leeches Out of Your Item Master


Jun 14, 2017 1:00pm - 2:00pm CDT

With the rapid expansion and use of the Electronic Health Records (EHR), supply chain data or more specifically the item master, is evolving to become a strategic asset and the center of truth for item data. As the single source of truth, this data is being leveraged to support clinical documentation and patient billing, including supply and implant capture at the point of use. With this increased use of this data comes a new set of challenges that the supply chain team must solve.  Join Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System (FMOLHS ) as they explain the journey they have taken over the last year to design, build, and deploy Clinical ConneXion to send data directly from GHX to Epic, allowing them to provide a more robust item file to Epic, with the goal of fully eliminating one-time (miscellaneous) supplies and to truly get the leeches out of their item master.

Learning Objectives:
•Understand how FMOLHS setup the supply file for EPIC
•Learn the value that the supply file brings to both the clinician and supply chain teams
•Discover the implementation challenges faced by FMOLHS, and how they are overcoming them
