Go Bruins – UCLA Goes Live Tonight with its “CareConnect” Epic Electronic Health Record

Big BruinAt midnight tonight UCLA Medical Center will go live with CareConnect, their name for their implementation of the Epic electronic health record. With this, four of the five University of California Medical Centers (Davis, San Diego, San Francisco, and Los Angeles) will have the same EHR infrastructure.
A handful of us from San Francisco, including my colleagues Carolyn Jasik, Ellen Weber, David Robinowitz, and I, are spending four days here helping support their clinicians and their go-live team. The two institutions have a lot in common, and several physicians from UCLA visited UCSF during our go-live to provide support and meet with our leadership team. It will be fascinating to see the similarities and differences in our respective builds and in how the clinicians work through their first days with the system.

EHR Go-Live Footwork

I wear a Fitbit digital pedometer, a gadget my colleague Dr Aaron Neinstein wrote about recently. Below is what our EHR go-live night looked like in terms of footwork, with the “T minus 2 hour” midnight mark at far left, and “T plus 22 hours” at far right. Fitbit’s online graph insists on displaying calendar days so the afternoon and evening run-up to the go-live does not show here. The stretch of inactivity at midday is me getting some sleep. Graph of pedometer readings for UCSF Epic EHR go-live
