Integration options with Epic

In order to streamline workflows for clinical teams, W2H has a menu of tools and solutions that allow for information to flow into and from Penn Medicine’s instance of Epic known as PennChart. W2H also has some of these same integrations available with Lancaster General Hospital (LGH)'s instance of Epic.

Out-of-the-box solutions

Out-of-the-box solutions are configurable by your implementation lead. This may require your team to work with an Epic analyst to build a new in-basket pool or flowsheet if one does not already exist.
