Enterprise master person index

Epic's Identity™ EMPI keeps your database clean by eliminating duplicate records and by actively preventing users from creating them in the first place. Uniting demographic, registration, and encounter data from all of your Epic and non-Epic systems, Identity compares a broad sample of identifying information to evaluate patient records. It then applies multiple logical comparisons that account for misspellings, typos, nicknames, names that sound alike, and even maiden names. Streamlined utilities make it easy to merge records when duplicates are found and to unmerge patient records when necessary.

Enterprise registration - ambulatory access

Prelude® makes registration intuitive, efficient, and virtually error-proof. It provides a single patient registration record for all care settings and patient types - allowing patients to receive care from different facilities/physicians without providing the same information repeatedly. Tailored workflows, wizards, and extensive error checking help users complete registrations swiftly and accurately, while HIPAA-compliant electronic eligibility and address verification help ensure accurate billing. Rules-based workqueues efficiently organize follow up activity according to flexible criteria, targeting problem registrations and delegating follow up to the appropriate staff. With Prelude, patients benefit from fast, efficient service, and your organization profits from high productivity, rapid reimbursement, and increased customer satisfaction.

My Chart

MyChart® is helping organizations across the country raise their profiles, improve patient satisfaction and differentiate themselves in competitive environments, including environments where other organizations are also using EHRs. By making services available from MyChart, you can strengthen your existing patient relationships and attract new patients.

Much more than an online health diary or a one size fits all information portal, MyChart gives patients controlled access to information in their Epic medical records along with convenient self-service options. It will help you meet a growing demand for consumer involvement, letting patients take an active role in their own healthcare while reducing the burden on your internal resources. Your organization's staff will spend less time answering phone calls and your patients will enjoy quick access to the information they need.

Enterprise reporting system

Epic offers a suite of dynamic tools for creating reports, queries, graphs, and charts for on-screen display and printing. Clarity®/Analyst® allows users with various skill levels to access our integrated databases and data elements and create reports for virtually every situation, using tools tailored to different types of reporting needs.

Clarity/Analyst helps organizations gain a competitive edge in the marketplace, analyzing revenue cycles, clinical outcomes, and other key information to identify areas of strength and diagnose potential problems. The ability to work with clinical, access and financial data from the same repository allows you to dissect data by diagnosis, procedure, payor, provider, age, sex, ZIP Code or literally any combination of criteria.>

Analyst is a system that queries live data or data on a shadow server to avoid impacting production operations. Key functionality includes Epic's Reporting Workbench infrastructure. The Reporting Workbench provides a template-driven GUI system for running on-demand queries on a shadow copy of the patient database. Users can take immediate action on the patients retrieved by a Reporting Workbench query, such as adding the patients to a personal electronic roster.

Clarity uses a separate online analytical processing server and can be employed as a link to a data warehouse, pulling together information from disparate systems into a single reporting database. Epic has developed standard extracts for exporting production data to Oracle, MS SQL Server, or Teradata databases, allowing you to use familiar third-party report writers to analyze Epic data.

With Clarity and Analyst, the answers you find are limited only by the questions you can dream up. Epic provides clients with a Web-based community library, where you can borrow from hundreds of custom reports developed by Epic or submitted by some of the most progressive healthcare organizations in the country.
