What you need to know
To help physicians address the growing vaping epidemic, the Patient Safety and Quality Department has created a vaping question for patients aged 12 and above in Epic’s admission navigator.
This question is now live.
Thank you to the team of Chief Medical Information Officers (CMIOs), pediatricians, nursing informatics, Epic specialists and experts, nurse epidemiologists, respiratory therapists, cancer specialists, smoking cessation experts, patient safety and quality experts and Chief Quality Officers for coming together and creating this solution. An additional thanks to Hackensack’s clinical team who made this recommendation during a recent safety huddle.
If you have a quality concern or suggestion, please contact your region’s CMIO:

- Central Region: Charu Dhavalikar, M.D.
- South Region: Amy Maneker, M.D.
