THE EMR…ON PAPER…IN YOUR POCKET.

THE EMR…ON PAPER…IN YOUR POCKET.

WHIRL compresses patient data onto an 8 x 11 printed page into an efficient clinical overview. WHIRL lists may be created and shared with colleagues as desired. For each patient, users can see handoff summary/plan, vitals, diet, code status, I/Os, lines/drains/airway, labs, meds, imaging, procedures, etc.

The IllumiCare Ribbon provides a single sign-on launch from Epic, and the WHIRL Rounding List leverages Epic’s FHIR and private APIs to collect the clinical data that will be featured on the rounding document. To view the WHIRL listing in the Epic App Orchard, click here.

  • Decreases chart review time
  • Improves provider satisfaction and
  • improves accuracy of information

Time saved by WHIRL can be repurposed to physician education, communication between healthcare providers, and direct patient care.

Each user can customize which data elements are displayed (and can save multiple views). For many data elements, each user can also customize the name and level of detail. Paper remains the most efficient way to quickly reference information and jot down notes. WHIRL reduces the data you need from Epic into a handy, printed rounding aid.
In one view, providers see the cost of every order, can search for alternatives and has current opportunities highlighted.
