Wanted to get some ideas from individuals here about any useful improvements you or your clinic has done to make your work life easier. The ones I've done are the following:
Purchased a mouse with programmable buttons (Logitech G602) and linked each button to shortcut keys for Epic EHR usage (ex. clicking "x" button brings me to the Rooming tab, clicking another brings me to Results Review) instead of having to use the keyboard or mouse/touchpad.
Using a high resolution monitor or laptop for more real estate, which means less scrolling on Epic, thus the ability to see more. For example, you'll be able to see the Medications & Orders, Diagnoses, and Progress Notes all on one screen.
Using a remote desktop service to control your desktop from your laptop (ask your IT about this). This is useful if you're bringing your laptop into each patient's room and then using your desktop when you're back in your office; you'll be on the same screen as the laptop and you won't be kicked out of Epic after being inactive for x time. Also, my clinic for whatever reason doesn't let you sign orders directly from the laptop to print out (likely an IT issue), but this way allows you to sign off in the patient's room since you're actually using the desktop. You also won't have to deal with those Epic issues where it tells you it's "read-only" because you'll only be using one account instead of being logged on twice.
Purchased an inexpensive mesh Wi-Fi system (Google) for patient usage.
