2022 Stronger - P127 - Mission Possible: Preference Card Optimization For New EMR System - On Demand

As we prepared to transition from one electronic medical record (EMR) to another, we knew that a preference card clean-up was critical to avoid significant post-transition data loss and unnecessary editing. Years of duplicate and conflicting information and cards that required cleanup were intimidating prospects. Our mission, which we chose to accept, was to reduce the physical number of preference cards that would need to be uploaded into the new EMR while retaining the necessary information to perform surgical procedures — with the added benefit of reducing the number of physician-returned items.

Target Audience

  • Nurses
  • Other Healthcare Professionals

Learning Objectives

Identify team-based strategies to optimize rather than reduce the use of preference cards.

Describe the management of common challenges associated with preference cards.
