Maria Gonzalez, RN, Kathleen Faubion, RN, and Nancy Yan, RN, work together to build iCare for nurses, physicians,
staff and patients.
- Over 100 El Camino Hospital staff joined the iCare team in June 2014.
- Every unit has "Subject Matter Experts" (SMEs), nurses who have given input into the design of the system.
- iCare goes live in November 2015.
In June 2014, El Camino Hospital embarked on an exciting journey: the Road to iCARE implementation, with a "Wizard of Oz" theme. The second six months of the year were occupied with design sessions and building the new electronic medical record system. Workflows, order sets, clinical documentation and enhanced functionality have been addressed as we move toward implementation of the new EMR. Nurses, physicians and clinical support departments have worked side by side to create a system that will benefit our patients.
