Keeping Our Eyes On The Details

Epic will give our nurses more time to spend with you and less time manually checking your medications. The key to providing world-class healthcare is found in keeping track of every single detail about our patients. With Epic, every detail related to your healthcare is quickly and easily accessible to your Ochsner healthcare team, and your care team will have improved access to information about drug-to-drug and drug-to-food allergies so they can make sure the medicines they recommend for you are the best possible choice.

If you ever stay in one of our medical centers using Epic, your nurses will now use barcoded medication administration—meaning that they will scan your patient ID bracelet and then scan the medication label before they give you any medication. This system triple-checks that you are receiving the right medication at the right time and in the right way—giving our nurses more time to spend with you and less time manually checking your medications.
