Jan. 30, 2020 — If you use the Epic electronic medical record, or EMR, then UF Health IT Services has you covered.
The Epic Training Team invites you to check out their newly updated Epic EMR Website designed for Gainesville customers.
The site is for faculty, residents and staff — from UF Health Shands, the UF College of Medicine and UF Health Physicians — who use Epic EMR tools and applications.
If you bookmarked the original site, you’ll automatically be redirected.
Or choose one of these options:
- Go directly to the Epic site
- Visit the intranet homepage and hover or click on the “Education” tab; under “Faculty/Staff Development,” select “Epic Training.”
- From the IT Services site, look under “Services” and “Get Help.”
Users already on the network will not need to log in. If a user is connecting from outside the UF Health network, they will need to use the VPN to navigate to the site. Log in to the VPN (using your UF Health userid and password) to access a new “storefront” and easy links to Epic education and resources.
“We want to make sure everyone’s aware of the great tools available,” said Lisa Merry, R.N., M.S.N., UF Health IT Services Clinical Applications lead. “We still hear from faculty and staff who didn’t know the Epic training site exists, so we want to share the improvements and encourage visits.”
The revamped site is user-friendly, providing quick access to the following:
- Application Training and Documentation
- Links to Update/Upgrade HQ information for all applications
- Links to documentation for specific user groups (including ambulatory, anesthesia, emergency, oncology, lab and pathology, health information management, billing, hospital outpatient departments, etc.)
- Training and Resources
- Training modules, e-learning links, videos
- Epic UserWeb and Epic Playground
- Help links to FAQs and access requests
- The Epic training calendar
- Maps to IT Services classrooms
- Contacts and a feedback form to suggest improvements to the site
Late spring, the team will add a new “For Clinicians” section with resources designed by our faculty physicians for physicians. The goal is to help doctors link to trending support questions and videos. This effort is being led by Danielle Nelson, M.D., UF College of Medicine assistant professor of community health and family medicine; Brian C. Lobo, M.D., UF College of Medicine assistant professor of otolaryngology; Judith Brownlee, RHIA, Clinical Applications coordinator; and Lisa Merry, R.N., M.S.N.
