On Monday, March 25, Houston Methodist launched FHIR Patient Education within Epic. We are the first system to beta-test this solution in Epic providing our patients with education and discharge instructions seamlessly through MyChart and on the after-visit and discharge summaries.
The ability to view patient education videos in Epic and on WOWs has been disabled. This was causing slowness in Epic, which technical teams are working to resolve.
Until a resolution is found, a limited number of Video Health Sheets can be printed for your patients. These sheets include a brief description of the videos and both a QR code and website URL, so patients can access and view the videos on their personal devices only.
This video access information will be automatically added to the AVS or MyChart accounts, so our patients can conveniently view it upon discharge.
- The Clinical References activity for patient education will be removed from Epic (except in the ED) on Monday, April 15. To prepare for this change, please start using the new FHIR Education tool and take advantage of the training in LMS and tip sheets in the Epic Learning Home.
- Training is highly recommended for all inpatient RNs, clinical pharmacists, respiratory therapists, PT/OT/SLP and dieticians. Training is available in LMS SuccessFactors (course #1575123).
