Resources

The Office of Johns Hopkins Physicians seeks to support physicians across the enterprise in serving our patients better. Toward that end, the office has gathered the following resources of interest.

Clinical Connection

Hear from and connect with Johns Hopkins health care professionals sharing insights on the latest clinical innovations and advances in patient care. Access videos, articles, news, clinical trials and much more.

Continuing Medical Education

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Office of Continuing Medical Education (OCME) strives to provide up-to-date clinical and research information in appropriate educational formats so that participants are able to improve their knowledge, skills, attitudes, behaviors, and the clinical outcomes for their patients. The vision of OCME is to provide physicians and other health care professionals' exemplary, cutting-edge educational endeavors that teach evidence-based practices and identify new and emerging health care needs and opportunities from research through delivery of care so that, through education, we can significantly improve health.

Epic

Johns Hopkins Medicine’s integrated electronic medical record system Epic has now rolled out across more than 600 ambulatory care settings, including outpatient clinics at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, and Johns Hopkins Community Physicians (JHCP) locations, as well as Howard County General Hospital, Sibley Memorial Hospital and Suburban Hospital. The Johns Hopkins Hospital Pediatric Emergency and Adult Emergency Departments are also live with Epic. It is designed to create one unified patient record system for the entire enterprise and incorporates scheduling and registration, clinical documentation, computerized provider order entry (CPOE), ePrescribing, and Charge Capture. It also improves the critical connection to affiliate and referring physicians across Johns Hopkins Medicine.

HIPAA Compliance

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, better known as HIPAA, was created by the federal government to protect patients’ private information. Johns Hopkins Medicine is committed to patient and health plan member privacy and believes it is critical to providing quality health care.
