Importance of communication to affected departments prior to Live!
Prior to implementing any changes to EHR, the lead team should communicate any changes to affected applications. An approval from leadership is mandatory. For an instance, when there is a change to an orderset, and Willow is making a change to medication section, Willow should communicate the change to Order team who is responsible for managing order set. Similarly, if an additional medication build is created, and that build would affect the workflow of ED nurses, then Willow must communicate that to the ASAP team, who will then communicate to their leadership for approval. Without communication or approval from leadership, there may be operational and clinical consequences downstream.
