Managing Patient Care

Admission & Orders


Our electronic medical records (EMR) system, Epic, features Navigators that guide you through steps to complete direct admits, ED to IP admits and transfers:

  • Direct Admit Navigator—Follows provider’s workflow for admitting a patient directly to a unit/floor within the hospital.
  • ED to IP Admit Navigator—Follows provider’s workflow for a patient being admitted into the hospital after presenting in the ED.
  • Transfer Navigator—Designed for the transfer workflow, this navigator allows the provider to view patient information, initiate the patient’s transfer and manage the patient’s orders.

Order Entry

Epic has two types of orders:

  • Medications—Any time a medication is involved, the order is considered a medication order.
  • Procedures—All other orders—labs, imaging, diets, consults/referrals, procedures, equipment, nursing and more—are considered procedure orders.
