Michigan Medicine honored for best practices in electronic medical records
Michigan Medicine was recently recognized by Epic — the software behind MiChart — for achieving continuous improvements in patient outcomes, quality of care, workflow efficiency, and financial performance. Epic awarded Michigan Medicine with Cum Laude status in its Honor Roll Program which comes with a financial grant of $490,000.
“This achievement is a reflection of Michigan Medicine’s devotion to excellence in health IT and patient care,” said Amanda Sedlik, senior director at Health Information Technology & Services. “Participating in the program ensures we draw the most value from MiChart while improving the health and wellness of the communities we serve.”
HITS partnered with stakeholders across Michigan Medicine to make enhancements that help engage patients in the care process, make MiChart easier for clinicians to use, and keep pace with the rapid advance of health technology and medical knowledge.
“A phenomenal amount of work went into achieving this honor,” Sedlick said. “It was a collaborative effort and I applaud the perseverance of the many teams who contributed.”
