Additional Patient Information Now Available in the Epic in Basket Message

The “Epic In Basket” message, which notifies study teams if a research participant has been admitted to either the emergency department or as an inpatient, is getting an upgrade.

In addition to the participant’s name, medical record number and other demographics, admission information will now include:

  • the study in which the patient is participating
  • the chief complaint and diagnosis (if documented)
  • more detailed admission information
  • any notes posted in the problem list

A screenshot of the new “Epic In Basket” message is below.  You can also download it here.
