I like that Epic is easy to navigate. Some healthcare information systems are not user friendly and not intuitive to use. Epic is easily navigable. I also really like to ability to use dot phrases in Epic. This makes my charting and work life so much easier and faster to be able to utilize pre-written information in my assessments/re-assessments.
At times it can be confusing how to exit out of a certain part of the chart. Also, it sometimes takes many clicks to get to a certain component--I think certain sections could be a little easier and a little more user friendly
I think Epic is a very easy program to use and is easy to navigate. I have used other healthcare information systems in the past and Epic is by far my favorite to use. It does require some training on, given there are some aspect that you would not know unless someone trained you on it. But, once training is done it is very easy to use.
I utilize epic as a dietitian and it is beneficial that Epic has an easy to read flow sheet option to look at weights, vitals, labs etc. It is also very beneficial in looking at patients previous medical history--because the chart review aspect is very easy to navigate and with the option to filter certain things, it is very easy to find what I am looking for.
