– If you have been living under a rock, it may be a surprise to you that the date is rapidly approaching when physician documentation via e-Health will “go-live” here at LGH. For the rest of us, now is the time to begin to get ready.
In this issue of Progress Notes, we discuss both recent classes on “Dragon” training (voice recognition software), as well as upcoming personalization training, which will make the use of Epic in the hospital easier for all of us. I encourage everyone to get involved now, so that when the real thing begins in the fall, we will be as ready as possible.
We also continue our series of interviews with our new Department Chairs, this month covering Drs. Lauter and Devenyi. We share some news about kudos the hospital has received, and we have even started a contest for loyal readers who manage to get to the very last article in the issue. Enjoy.
