Beacon Tips & Tricks
- Place all medications related to a patient’s oncology treatment in Beacon and everything else in “meds and orders” in EPICare. The orders flow differently through the system and should be segregated for the cleanest patient record.
- Spend the time to build treatment plans that follow NCCN guidelines. All treatment plans can be easily modified to suit the needs of a specific patient. Starting with an NCCNrecommended treatment plan ensures that every physician has a good base plan to work from.
- Physicians should sign all orders in the treatment plan; they can be modified on the day of treatment if necessary.
