Clinical documentation is critical in helping healthcare organizations maintain patient safety and a high quality of patient care, but workstations are not always available or conveniently located…

Epic solves this by providing an efficient, mobile-enabled solution that allows users to complete tasks and manage documents anytime, anywhere. Read on to learn more!

What is Epic Rover?

Epic Rover is a mobile application interface that allows users to access tools for medication administration, clinical review, and other clinical documentation workflows at the direct point of care.

The Epic Rover application enables authorized clinical users to…

  • Ensure positive identification of clinicians, patients, and medication through secure barcoded medication administration (BCMA)
  • Seamlessly connect Rover to Epic’s electronic health record (EHR) to improve visibility across the entire patient care lifecycle
  • Access, utilize, and manage clinical workflows wherever and whenever from their mobile devices
  • Leverage secure access to tools used to optimize patient record documentation, specimen collection, and barcode scanning processes

Who Uses the Epic Rover App?

The Epic Rover mobile app, designed to simplify clinical operations and improve accessibility for Rover authorized clinical users, is available for iOS, Android, and other mobile platforms. To access Rover’s advanced mobile capabilities, organizations must have licensed Rover and use Epic 2014 or any later versions.

Regardless of your role in the organization or the size of your facility, Epic Rover offers customizable functionality to ensure each user has the specific features they need to complete tasks, access important patient data, measure vitals, and validate identification anywhere.

Key Capabilities for Mobile Device Users

The Epic Rover app offers a few key features that help healthcare organizations manage clinical documentation workflows, maintain quality of patient care and safety, and leverage integrations with Epic Hyperspace.

Here are a few of the main capabilities of the Epic Rover solution…

Touchscreen Functionality

With built-in touchscreen functionality in the Rover app, clinicians and other hospital staff members can quickly and easily complete flowsheet documentation, take and document vital signs, and access integrated Epic modules and applications, including EpicCare Inpatient, Epic Radiant, Epic Beaker, and more.

Mobility for Core Workflows

The Epic Rover mobile app offers the mobility, accessibility, and functionality needed to help organizations save time and improve efficiency across the board. By allowing staff members to document on-the-go, Epic Rover not only enhances employee and system productivity, but it also helps improve patient safety and reduce the risk for medication errors throughout the organization.

In-App Camera Access

Epic Rover gives users the opportunity to take photos, scan barcodes, and import images into their Epic software directly with the camera on their mobile devices. This functionality makes it easier for clinicians to document and upload visual data wherever they need it, while still maintaining confidentiality in the process.
