Beacon Chemo orders

Hi all,

We are an Epic based system and only have Beacon in our outpatient infusion side currently (not inpatient). I was wondering if anyone could share any safety improvements for using Beacon on outpatient infusion side. Specifically:

1. How do you document or keep track of interventions, changes to regimens, or pertinent discussions with MDs? iVents don't work as well in this setting because these orders aren't released yet and each time is a different encounter so it requires a lot of digging..

Outpatient Infusion Centers - Error Reporting

Hello all,

If your organization has outpatient oncology infusion centers, do you have any established metrics around error reporting? We are working with a multidisciplinary team on what that would look like and how we can normalize the data to compare sites of different sizes. Some studies report error rates per 100 clinic visits or 1,000 medication orders.

Does anyone have a similar metric for outpatient infusion error reporting?
