By LaVonne Akinwumiju, Epic Communications Consultant

 

When Epic launches at Main Line Health on Saturday, March 3, 2018, we will need the active engagement and support of everyone Systemwide to make this transition a success. To ensure the engagement of all employees, Main Line Health has established a Basic Leave Time Restriction period during the period surrounding the launch of Epic. This Basic Leave Time Restriction Period is scheduled for February 17 – March 17, 2018, encompassing the two weeks prior to and the two weeks following launch. During this time, all basic leave time (BLT) will be restricted, with the exception of select events that require approval from a manager or an appointed designee.

  • Exceptions to this restriction period include life events (weddings, births, graduations, religious observances, bereavement and emergencies)
  • Requests for BLT during the restriction period must be approved by an employee’s manager or appointed designee
  • This procedure does not impact sick leave or FMLA
  • Managers and their staff should work together to proactively plan for BLT throughout the rest of the year as Main Line Health’s basic leave carry over policy will still remain in effectNote: This restriction period applies to all Main Line Health employees, including employed physicians. Although non-employed MLH physicians are not subject to this restriction period, we ask that these MLH physicians take note of our Epic launch period and prepare accordingly for our historic milestone.

This period will give all staff the ability to participate in this historic milestone. In order to ensure a successful launch, please take note of this period and plan proactively to make certain this transition will be a success for our patients and co-workers.

Note: This restriction period applies to all Main Line Health employees, including employed physicians. Although non-employed MLH physicians are not subject to this restriction period, we ask that these MLH physicians take note of our Epic launch period and prepare accordingly for our historic milestone.
