Hepatology Referral Enhanced

The new Metabolic Liver Disease Clinic within the Sherrie and Alan Conover Center for Liver Disease & Transplantation is slated to open in November, providing a multidisciplinary approach to treating NAFLD patients.

To support the new clinic, the Hepatology Referral in Epic is now updated. This will help triage our patients more efficiently and provide better care. Enhancements include:

  • Select your patient’s preliminary diagnosis to better direct referrals.
  • The FIB-4 fibrosis assessment is included in the notes, defining acuity/severity to the consulting physician and the hepatology service.
  • Acuity information is now provided to the referring service, including FIB-4 fibrosis assessment.

You must now select provider and diagnosis in Ambulatory referral to Hepatology.
