Caregivers and staff at Seton Medical Center Harker Heights have been on Epic since July, and we are pleased to hear how end-users have adapted to the new health record.
Stacy Sepeda, Clinical Programs Manager at Seton, praised Epic for the single, streamlined approach to care versus the two separate systems they had before: “We can now all see each other’s documentation for continuity of care, and the improved communication leads to better outcomes for our patients.”
Amy Lemuel, RN at Seton Medical Center Harker Heights, is excited about going live with Epic THIS WEEK! "Epic is going to break Seton Medical Center Harker Heights into our own stratosphere! The software will streamline communication throughout the organization and allow more time for the nursing staff to provide greater care for our ever-increasing patient population. I wish we could have gone live already!
Epic goes live at Seton Medical Center Harker Heights on July 12, 2019. Employee Kimberly Abdur-Raheem shared her excitement about Epic from previous experience with the platform: "Given my previous experiences with Epic as a nurse, I love that Epic is user friendly. It offers so many ways to get the job done. Its workflows grant all departments, including the Emergency Room and Operating Room, access to patient information. This ultimately provides continuity of patient care throughout the patient's hospital stay.
"Epic has allowed us to access patient information more easily. Epic allows you to look at patient care like a story with all the access you need at your fingertips. There is still much to learn and it is an evolving process; however, the ability to customize your workflow and add in procedural/policy changes in an instant is a huge step for both patient care and the ability to produce more accurate reports to outside sources such as Medicare."

With Epic, everything that we do is instant, even if it involves other disciplines. If a provider enters an order I see it instantly. Once I check it, the nurses see it instantly. There are truly no delays in the system; information is updated on the record. Those efficiencies are really going to pay off as we continue to refine the system.
