To facilitate the chart review process by safety personnel a chart review timeline tool was developed to provide a holistic approach. The tool allows users to visualize clinical care from start to finish in one location. This tool has been integrated within the current EHR and is live within acute care locations sharing the Cerner platform. Sixty-three users have found it to be helpful and relied upon in streamlining the existing process.
