Spring MiChart System Upgrade Coming April 21


The next MiChart upgrade is planned for Sunday, April 21. This will be the first planned upgrade for 2024 with a goal to introduce new features, limit impact to the organization, and maintain regulatory requirements. 

The Spring upgrade will include updates, system maintenance, and new features to the MiChart application. The newest upgrade will enable some key changes and enhancements, including: 

  • New Timeline Reports added to the Summary Activity. 
  • OR Schedulers can review and request newly available OR Time from In Basket. 
  • Anesthesia Staff can review rooms running by time of day with new report. 
  • Automatic Notifications for Unused OR Block Times. 
  • Two new bed cleaning statuses 'Cleaning Delayed' and 'Cleaning Postponed' will be available. 

Clinician User Experience Labs 

To prepare for new features within the upgrade, MiChart users are invited to attend User Experience Labs to test their daily workflows in a practice environment. The labs will offer the opportunity to identify the impact of changes and provide feedback to the MiChart Upgrade project team.
