DEPARTMENT UPDATES Central Coast Service Area Closes Out First Week on Cerner and MS4! Submitted by Maisha Brown , EHR Alliance Communications Analyst – PAS

Not only was a storm brewing a week ago, staff and clinicians in the Central Coast likely had pre Go-Live jitters and were pretty antsy as they awaited the official green light to use their new EHR system. Now, several days in, most nerves have settled and staff is well on their way to becoming ex- perts. A year from now, some of these same folks may be savvy enough to provide at-the-elbow support during another region’s activation as part of the EHR Go-Live Circle of Life. Although the past week brought both highs and lows, ultimately CCSA is in a very good place. Issues reported to the Command Center have become more complex in nature, a sure sign that staff confidence levels are increasing. CCSA will be the first where support for staff and Providers

overlap as Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE) goes live on Tuesday, March 11.
