Beaumont, Henry Ford rethink the ICU

Beaumont Hospital Royal Oak (MI) redesigns its ICU to display data from Epic and monitors in a big-screen graphical format that increases real-time data visibility with fewer clicks.

Switching programs, MultiCare Spokane hopes to streamline medical records for patients

  1. All the hullabaloo around UIC’s Epic and Cerner mess is pretty pointless. And so are the Black Book and KLAS results. Nobody, absolutely nobody (and that includes providers, patients, IT support people) is delighted with either Cerner or Epic (13 clicks to get the right information out in ICU from Epic!!!).

    At the end of the day, these are two highly mediocre products with not much daylight between them in an industry that has traditionally not asked much from its IT vendors probably because as an industry, it itself doesn’t believe in excellence in customer service. To paraphrase an old computer science term: “mediocrity in, mediocrity out”.
