In the ever-evolving world of healthcare, excellence is not a destination but a continuous journey. The American University of Beirut Medical Center (AUBMC) has always embraced this journey and strived to be at the pioneering edge of healthcare. These days, that means seeking out and utilizing the latest in cutting-edge technology, not only for the doctor's office and operating room, but also for medical records management. In 2018, the medical center rolled out AUBHealth, a state-of-the-art electronic health record system developed by Epic, the largest and most trusted healthcare technology provider in the US.
Since then, the American University of Beirut information technology (IT) team and AUBMC clinical staff have been working continuously to optimize and enhance the usability of the AUBHealth system. Their passion and dedication have resulted in two remarkable milestones that highlight this university's and its staff members' commitment to excellence in healthcare.
Epic Gold Stars Level 8 Achievement
At the heart of AUBMC's success is its exceptional IT team, and they have once again demonstrated their prowess by achieving the prestigious Gold Stars Level 8 recognition for their exemplary work in optimizing the Epic electronic medical records system. This achievement firmly places AUBMC among the top-tier of Epic institutional customers worldwide.
The Gold Stars Level 8 recognition is a testament to the team's tireless efforts in enhancing the usability and optimization of the Epic system. Their dedication has not only streamlined healthcare processes but also improved patient care and overall efficiency.
Epic Honor Roll Cum Laude Distinction
In addition, AUBMC earned the prestigious Cum Laude distinction on the Epic Honor Roll for the second time. This distinction is awarded to organizations that continually strive for improvement and derive maximum value from the Epic electronic medical records system.
The Cum Laude Honor Roll recognition is a reflection of the unwavering passion and dedication exhibited by AUBMC's IT team and clinical staff in every endeavor. It's not just about data management; it's about transforming healthcare and enhancing patient outcomes.
These two remarkable achievements would not have been possible without the hard work and determination of the AUBMC IT team and clinical staff. A special thanks go to the leaders of these two projects, Houry Nalbandian and Ahmad Ayoub, who helped make these successes a reality.
AUBMC's story is one of dedication, innovation, and unwavering commitment to excellence in healthcare. As we continue to push the boundaries of what's possible, AUBMC is committed to raising the bar even higher as we continue pioneering healthcare solutions that make a difference in patients' lives and serve as a model for others to follow.
