The conversion from Epic to Cerner as provider of the electronic health record (EHR) in the Banner – University Medical Center Tucson and South hospitals and clinics is now only three months away. In that time, more than 6,000 physicians and staff will undergo Cerner training.
All physicians should please sign up by March 17 for training. This includes Banner physicians, UA faculty physicians and all fellow and resident physicians in practice and training at Banner facilities in Tucson.

- Did you know that when the term “non-contributory” is used in a statement for documenting family history that no credit is given for family history?
