Pyxis ES 1.6 Equipment Swap

In 2023, 8 Acute Care Service Line Facilities replaced a total of 690 pieces of Pyxis ES 1.6 equipment including Med and Anesthesia stations with new Win10 devices. All devices were built on the Consolidated ES server (CONS) which involved interdisciplinary collaboration with Corporate IT Security, Corporate IT Server/Network and the PMO teams.

Pyxis Active Directory

In 2023, over 90% of our Acute Care Service Line Facilities implemented Active Directory (AD), which allows Pyxis end users to have a single sign-on using their RWJBH network account to access the devices.

BD C2 Safe Upgrade

The C2 Safe provides the hospitals a secure system that monitors and tracks controlled substances and offers inventory management reports while streamlining regulatory documentation processes. In 2023, 6 Acute Care Service Line facilities upgraded their C2 safe from V7 to V9.

Epic Willow

In April 2023, 5 Acute Care Service Line facilities RWJBarnabas Health Behavioral Health Center, Community Medical Center, Jersey City Medical Center, Monmouth Medical Center and Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus transitioned from their heritage EHR system Cerner Millenium to Epic Willow.

In October 2023, the three remaining Cerner sites Clara Maass Medical Center, Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center and Newark Beth Israel Medical Center went live on Epic. The new clinical information system was implemented to existing departments already on Cerner Millenium along with areas previously documenting on paper or a standalone EHR. An average of 80 Pharmacists across the system helped with the backload the day before go-live for Waves 4 and 5. A multidisciplinary team assisted with the build and validation efforts leading to a successful go-live for these facilities in Waves 4 and 5.
