The Guthrie Employee Health team has a number of resources available for employees who wish to quit tobacco use. If you are an employee looking for support, the first step is to contact Employee Health. You will be set up with individualized counseling, appropriate quit aids (e.g. patch, gum, medications) and ongoing support. In addition, there are a number of quit support resources available via phone, online, or through an app, which you may use in addition to or instead of the employee health program.
On August 26, Guthrie will be going live in Epic with the American College of Radiology ACR Select imaging decision support. ACR Select uses evidence-based appropriate use criteria (AUC) to determine if an imaging order is appropriate based on the patient’s age, gender, and reason for exam. If the order is determined to fall outside the ACR guidelines based on these factors, a notification window will appear to the provider when signing the order with suggestions of imaging orders aligned with the decision support. No notification will appear if the order is determined appropriate.

The new format allows photos to be uploaded with listings and allows the seller to mark the item as sold with one quick click. The same rules apply regarding the types of items that can be posted for sale, and the Human Resources team will still be responsible for approving items which are submitted for sale.
