With the rise in molecular infectious disease testing, especially during this particularly busy flu season, make sure you are delivering clean, user-friendly results to your physicians. In this post, I'll discuss a potential way to optimize your EHR and LIS for the delivery of molecular results in Beaker.
One great feature of using Epic's Beaker LIS is the seamless integration with the rest of the EHR. In this post, I'll outline how the lab can take advantage of this integration to be alerted if the patient is taking medications of interest. This often gets missed during the implementation so is a great (and rather simple) EHR optimization.
Complex projects with many moving parts absolutely necessitate clearly delegated ownership of tasks. Beaker implementations, whether an add-on or as part of an enterprise install, are certainly no exception. In this post, I'll discuss and provide a tool that can help facilitate assigning major Beaker areas of ownership.
Spreadsheet after spreadsheet, analysts working on a Beaker implementation often live in an Excel-dominated world. This post offers a few helpful Excel tips to simplify build and analysis during your implementation.
In this post, we outline the current guidelines from the Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) for Group A Streptococcal (GAS) pharyngitis testing and discuss how you can implement them in your LIS. This EHR/LIS optimization should only require a few minutes of build.
