Be Empowered. Be Empowering. B-Epic.
Ballad Health knows how to B-Epic. We’re taking care of our people like they’re family. We’re providers, hand holders, listeners and call takers; from our team members who wipe down operating tables to those who wipe away tears – we are the healthcare organization of the Appalachian Highlands.
Now we’ve taken another step to be the best – with Epic. We’re saving time, being more present and improving safety with one electronic health record. The benefits of Epic far outweigh the challenges of learning a new EHR system. Small victories each day will soon add up to major wins.
While half of our organization already uses Epic in their daily workflows, the other half is now joining hands to complete Ballad Health’s circle of care. With some training, knowledge, patience and support, Ballad Health can continue providing the best care to our region’s people, because we’ll have the best tools. With Epic, screens, workflows and apps can be personalized; simple tasks can be done quickly to save time; patients have the option of paperless billing; the online patient portal empowers patients and minimizes the need for phone calls; customized modules are dedicated to specialty care; and one record follows patients wherever they go.
One Ballad Health team member says, “Epic has helped me become a better provider.”
This one’s for the record books. Let’s be empowered and empowering. Let’s B-Epic.
With Epic, Ballad Health can safely and efficiently write patients’ health stories
When we work in different departments – or even in different cities – we can stand together for the good of patients. With Epic, we can listen to their stories while ensuring that the chapters stay together in one place – in one health record – to improve accessibility, connectedness and safety.
