EMR Rollout Update #1:
Alpha Test Results In, Software Glitches Out
April’s EMR Alpha Test set an aggressive goal: quickly uncover the glitches that inherently exist in new software introduced to clinical settings. Volunteering for JUP’s two-week EMR Alpha Test, the Department of Otolaryngology, which daily sees 350-550 patients, trained on the software before simultaneously launching all eight modules.
As EMR software was tested so were patience levels of Otolaryngologists, yet practice productivity was maintained despite the challenges of rigorous application testing. Their software scrutiny and professional stamina resulted in a successful Alpha Test because the department effectively pinpointed 40 critical areas of needed improvement to the EMR software. The constructive criticism provided vital information that JUP and its vendor used to create EMR software refinements. Improved as a result, EMR is now in its Beta Test phase and is used in daily practice by the Department of Otolaryngology.

"Our department is looking forward to using EMR to its full capacity. We can already see the benefits of the software and how it can improve patient care and satisfaction. I think it's going to be a great product."
