Post-Discharge Charting Access Changing for Specific Groupers

For PAS and Clinical Staff
Effective Saturday, May 1

To help you with the most recent Epic Update changes, 10 additional days were added to finish post-discharge charting. On Saturday, May 1 the time frame reverts to the standard three, four or seven-days. Note: This only applies to individuals in the three, four or seven-day groupers and not to other clinicians and physicians that have already been assigned to a different group. 

  • If you need to complete documentation in a chart that is now read-only, make an appointment with your local HIM department to use the open-access computer. For more information view this tip sheet.

  • Regardless of the group, medication charting is available 10 days post discharge.

  • If you have a workflow that requires a longer duration grouper, submit a Help Desk ticket stating your business need and justification. IT and HIM operations will review and respond accordingly.
