Electronic Medical Record (EMR): The hospital currently uses an Allscripts EMR which has been customized to meet the needs of our pediatric population. The system has electronic notes, computerized order entry, and integrated electronic sign out. The EMR is accessible throughout the campus and provides remote entry for all residents through Citrix. EPIC coming June 2018!

Communication: Every resident receives an iPhone to serve as their pager throughout residency, access online applications quickly, and speak with consulting services on the go!

Computer availability: Over 300 computers are available for resident use on the floors, in the newly renovated Residents’ Lounge and in the hospital library. This also includes computers on wheels (COWs) and laptops for bedside order entry and note writing.
