For Nurses and Advanced Practice

Improving documentation and care through technology

The initiation of the electronic medical record, known as Knowledge Based Charting (KBC) at the Penn Medicine was an exciting initiative that marked a transformation in the delivery of high quality patient care. KBC allows for reduced variation in practice, incorporating evidence based practice information that is real-time and provides many tools for clinicians to provide safe, patient- and family-centered care. This electronic medical record documentation via bedside computers has allowed Penn Medicine nurses to provide patient- and family-centered care, delivered through an evidence-based, interdisciplinary practice model that supports a healthy work environment and positive outcomes.
