Hello, we are moving to Epic in our province. My understanding is that Epic does not have a blood bank module. For those of you on Epic, who is your blood bank LIS provider that links into Epic and are you happy with the module. What are some of the pros and cons of your IT module?
Is anyone using SafeTrace TX with Orchard Harvest AND Epic?
I looking for someone who can answer a few IT type questions and offer a little advice. We are building STTX right now and are Community Connect Epic users via a much larger facility, with Harvest for our LIS. Our Epic 'parents' have asked us if we have any contacts who could answer questions about our interface build, etc.
We are going live with Epic/BPAM and Softbank (current system) this year. Our hospital uses blood bank wristbands and wants to continue their use, but we are having difficulty getting Epic to document the Wristband check at the bedside by the two RNs. Group O policy is not an option. Does anyone have experience with the blood bank wristband documentation in Epic/BPAM?
My hospital lab is switching to Epic Beaker and I have been given 2 1/2 weeks to find a blood bank system. We are evalulating Haemonetics, Mediware, and Soft.
Any feedback is appreciated. We are a free standing level 1 trauma center and have no donors.
