Interfacing

  • The Bridges Interface Development Toolkit facilitates interface maintenance with a real-time interface monitor, a usage statistics utility, an error logging utility, and an interactive error-analysis report.
  • Bridges enables developers to create a variety of message formats, providing data mapping capabilities and flexible data formatting.
  • Bridges includes templates for HL7, ANSI X12, and XML standards and can also be used to support interface transactions in a fixed format or other non-standard data formats.

Voice Recognition

  • Hyperspace, Epic’s graphical user interface, is compatible with third-party voice recognition applications.
  • Voice recognition allows users to convert voice input directly into progress notes or other text entries.
  • Patient monitoring devices –
  • Epic has the ability to connect to a wide range of patient monitoring devices.
  • Multiple patient monitoring devices can be downloaded into flow sheets rather than charting manually.
  • Once in the Epic system, data from devices can be graphed, reported on, and monitored for trends, improving overall care delivery.
  • Epic offers a standard HL7 Device Formatted Medical Device Interface that can be used for receiving discrete alphanumeric data from monitoring systems.
  • Most major manufacturers already have an option for HL7 interfacing, alleviating the need for a third-party middleware solution.

CCOW compatibility

  • Epic supports the Clinical Context Object Workgroup standard for coordination of different applications.
  • Working in conjunction with third-party context management software, the Epic user interface can accept the current user, patient and encounter contexts for a session from a non-Epic application, so the user does not need to re-enter this information.
  • Similarly, Epic’s interface can transmit the user, patient and encounter contexts to other applications.
