WVU Medicine locations that currently use Epic – including J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital, Berkeley Medical Center, and Jefferson Medical Center – will see a slight change beginning on Wednesday, May 10.

As part of the Butterfly Initiative, these facilities will switch to a single patient identifier called an E-number, which will replace the current MRNs (medical record numbers).

Beginning on May 10, the E-number will be used alongside the MRN on labels and armbands in FormFast, and on June 10, the MRN will be dropped entirely from all labels.

This change is part of an effort to simplify billing statements for patients. Read the latest Butterfly Blog to learn more.
