Procedure Pass Tool Ensures Pre-Procedure Task Completion

On Monday, May 18, Procedure Pass launches in Epic for Interventional Cardiology. Procedure Pass is designed to prevent same-day procedure cancellations and delays due to incomplete pre-surgical tasks.

With Procedure Pass:

  • Epic automatically generates pre-procedure task lists personalized for each patient, then marks tasks complete when documentation is finished prior to the procedure.
  • You’ll have an interactive checklist of tasks and required documentation for every procedure, including:
    • H&P notes
    • Consents
    • Orders for labs specific to the procedure or circumstances, (e.g., EKG)
  • If more than one piece of documentation can satisfy a pre-procedure task requirement, Epic will prompt you with a list of suggested steps to complete the task.

Additional benefits of Procedure Pass include:

  • A central place to track Pre-op and PAT tasks.
  • Standardized PAT protocols for cardiology.
  • Improved patient pre-op experience and care.
  • Decreased time reviewing charts.
