    Hi Sheryl,
    I am actually working on a house-wide roll out of MedAction Plan Pro. Our HemOnc department has been using the MedAction Plan program for the last 7ish years. We started using the program when you had to input all the  medications manually (old school)! The new system is so user friendly but it does require a little training. I am working in collaboration with the MedAction team and our clinical informatics group to work out the logistics for getting staff access and such. I had a request to have a “playground” type environment to allow staff to use the program in a safe environment but that request is not feasible at this time. I am working on developing an interactive training module with one of our EPIC trainers. The interactive module will be used as the initial training/introduction of the program, but my overall aim is to have the nurse educators add it to their orientation day with staff. I will be working with inpatient educators and ambulatory clinic educators and provide “train the trainer” education to them. I have also created a policy and a competency checklist that can be used when training. I am hoping the checklist will be added to our mandatory new hire training for those areas that will use the MAP system. Please feel free to reach out, I would love to know what you have come up with!

    I apologize for the late response.
    Med Action Plan was a project we worked on through our outpatient clinic 2014-2017.  It linked to our EPIC system and allowed us to send over our medication lists through an inbasket message.  They were working on a more seamless delivery method but it was not implemented when we were using it.  This allowed us to print an additional medication schedule / sheet for families that was very user friendly.  It has printable calendar check off sheets, pictures of syringe dosing and was easy to use.  It allowed text reminders that families could utilize, a compliance tracking system.

    Hi Sheryl,

    I would love to hear more about how your clinic is using MedAction Plan with EPIC. This is something that my institution is just starting to look into. Please email me if you are willing and able! kellie.kirbitz@helendevoschildrens.org

    We have been working over the last year to implement the MedAction Plan program in our hematology/oncology outpatient clinic.  It is now active and available to our staff, who are slowly picking up steam to utilize it.

    My question for all of you is:

    Are there any other institutions currently using this program with EPIC?  And if so would you like to brainstorm together to work out implementation road blocks we’ve found?
