Routine access to lab and radiology results and VTE risk assessments via CaseNotes will cease from Wednesday 9th April 2014. All results are available now just as quickly in the Millennium EPR. There will be exceptions to this for periods of planned or unplanned downtime of the EPR, and for non-OUH account holders in the community. Access to the eIDD, Section 2 & 5 forms and the Oxfordshire Care Summary will be maintained.
Please note that if you have not had sufficient training on EPR to view results you can apply to have your CaseNotes access continued, in the interim, by emailing the IM&T Help Desk at this special address (which will be available until the end of April). Please enter "Preserve access" in the subject line and then just your CaseNotes username as the first word of the email with a tab (press the tab key) separating this from your reason for applying to have your access preserved.
Alternatively, if you still have not become a Millennium EPR user, you can get the basics necessary to access results from the links below—in time all clinicians will need to use the EPR as the Trust transforms to fully digital working. If you need pre-2012 lab results in EPR, the laboratory service will be providing an email address that you can contact to have this done.
Please follow this link to the Millennium EPR eRequesting update which gives important information about:
If you have not had sufficient EPR training, then please consult the Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Millennium EPR and either complete the on-line training available at the Trust's e-learning site or apply for classroom training—booking guidance is available here. All doctors will need to complete the EPR Millennium Basics for Doctors e-Assessment at this link (select course group "EPR for Doctors") as this is now a mandatory training item for medical staff (and will also appear as a required assessment on your own eLMS home page when you log in).
