Patient List columns require updating

A recent Epic rebuild on July 25 related to physical and occupational therapy, created new flow sheet rows, which resulted in updated Patient List columns and physical documentation. To maintain accurate Patient List columns, VUAH providers who have PT and OT columns should delete older columns and add new therapy-related columns to Patient List. This will not impact regional hospitals.

If a patient has been admitted since July 25, therapy-related columns may be empty or contain outdated information. Users should navigate to Patient List on left side of Epic, right click, and select properties. A pop-up will appear displaying selected columns in bottom half. Remove old therapy columns and use the search button to find new columns labeled with the description VUAH ONLY.
