This month marks a year since we treated our first COVID-19 patient and went on lockdown. Many of the technologies we've developed since those early days of the pandemic not only helped us then, but will be with us for many years to come.
Streamlining nursing documentation for greater efficiency.
The COVID-19 pandemic left many clinicians stressed and fatigued, but it also shed light on an area where we can improve — clinical documentation.
Supporting our communities through a pandemic.
Houston Methodist has vaccinated nearly a half-million patients for COVID-19, a global leader in doses documented in Epic.
New Epic enhancements. Seamless patient care.
Earlier this month, we celebrated five years since we launched Epic. Since then, we’ve continued to improve Epic by adding several specialty-specific modules.
Collaborative technology is here to stay.
Last year, the pandemic propelled the speed of the launch of Microsoft Teams at Houston Methodist. It didn’t take long to realize that virtual chats and conferencing programs were not only embraced, but also necessary.
MyChart. A must-have for your health.
Since COVID-19 began last year, Houston Methodist MyChart use has skyrocketed. This online patient portal brings your medical records, treatment plans, test results, patient education, virtual visits and so much more to your fingertips.
