2014-01-06 – Catholic Health Partners First in Nation to Roll Out Epic’s MyChart Bedside Systemwide
Catholic Health Partners plans to roll out Epic Systems’ application for tablets called MyChart Bedside to its 23 hospitals after a successful pilot at St. Rita’s Medical Center in Lima, Ohio. In the pilot, 34 hospital patients used Epic’s new app on tablets they received from St. Rita’s (or used their own Android tablets), according to a release on PR Newswire.
MyChart Bedside ties directly to each patient’s electronic health record, providing information on test results, medicine, and upcoming procedures. Patients may view medication instructions, view photos and bios of caregivers, request blankets, and perform other tasks to make their stays more productive and enjoyable.
