Andrea Tennison is the Project Implementation Manager at Baptist Health Systems. She has 21 years of experience in Women’s Services with a focus on L&D, and 10 years of experience as a CPN Systems Administrator. Andrea has previously served two terms as President on the CPNUG Board.
I have been a CPN System Admin for the past 10 years and more than 30 years IT healthcare experience. In my current role at Frederick Memorial Hospital, we have expanded our service line to include Neonatologists, Pediatricians, along with Social Workers, Respiratory Therapists, Diabetes and Wound Care Specialties. An interdisciplinary approach using one clinical documentation venue improves patient safety and compliance. We have interfaces for ADT, NICU monitors via Carescape network, In and outbound for reports, CPOE, and Lab.
I am a clinical nurse and CPN system manager for the Maternity unit at UPMC Pinnacle Hanover in Hanover, PA. I have been the system manager since we went live with CPN in 2011. We have a site-tailorable system with 5 interfaces to Meditech, including ADT, lab, charge, medication administration and COLDfeed. When I’m not creating new computes in CPN, I am hanging out with my awesome son, Jamie.
I have used Centricity for the last 6 years but more on the technical side (reporting) than the clinical site. In my current role I work with client on their reporting needs, pulling data from various sources. I am very excited to join the team and help the board with my technical experience. I hope to be able to share with clients my knowledge in building and managing reports especially the new version (DRM – Data Reporting Module).
Bio coming soon…
I have been a Labor and Delivery Nurse for 25 years. I have used CPN since 1997. I have managed CPN (Site Tailorable) at EUHM since January 2009. We upgraded CPN in June 2016 adding in Mother Baby and SCN. I am interested in be more active with the user group as well as helping other users feel more comfortable with CPN. As healthcare is rapidly changing, we need to be able to change with our electronic documentation and continually and ultimately make documentation easier for the end users. When I am not working, I enjoy traveling, baking and spending time with my family.
