      The division of neurology adopted the “Superdoc” concept for all inpatient
      and emergency needs as of January 7, 2008.  You will no longer have to
      talk to one neurologist about a hospitalized patient, and a second one for
      the child who may need to be admitted from your office.  All emergent
      concerns and issues related to hospitalized patients will be addressed by
      a team headed by the neurologist who is on-call that week.  To reach the
      on-call neurologist during regular business hours, please contact our
      office at 937-641-3080.  After hours or weekends, please call Dayton
      Children’s operator at 937-641-3000.  We hope this change in practice
      improves communication and, thus, the way we take care of patients.  If
      you have any questions, contact Pedro Weisleder, MD, PhD, at 937-641-3080.

      Dayton Children’s welcomed Moira Pfeifer, MD, as our newest pediatric
      endocrinologist on January 8, 2008.  Dr. Pfeifer joins Dayton Children’s
      from Wright Patterson Air Force Base Medical Center.  Dr. Pfeifer
      completed her fellowship in pediatric endocrinology at Uniformed Services
      University of Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland, and the Walter Reed
      Army Medical Center in Washington, DC.  She is board certified in
      pediatrics and pediatric endocrinology.  A comprehensive range of
      endocrinology and diabetes mellitus services are available at Dayton
      Children’s.  Endocrinology is accepting all new patient referrals and is
      available to see new patients quickly.  For more information or to speak
      with the department of endocrinology, call 937-641-3487.

      This winter, Dayton Children’s departments of gastroenterology and
      neurology will offer new secure self check-in stations, which will help
      their preregistered patients and families minimize wait time at
      appointments.  Parents will be able to enter all demographic and insurance
      data,  sign consent forms and even pay their child's copay by credit card.
       All stations will be available in Spanish.  Questions? Call Karen Braun
      at 937-641-5056.

      EPIC CARE 
      On Thursday, January 17, Janice Cobb and colleagues provided a
      demonstration of EpicCare, the web based application that will allow
      community-based physicians and other providers to view the medical record
      of any child linked to the provider or his/her group.  This view only
      application (stay tuned for added functionality in the future) will
      replace the wellness connection as the portal for review of labs,
      transcribed documents and clinic visits.  We are excited about this next
      step and will be seeking input from a number of community-based
      physicians.  Questions? Call Tom Murphy, MD, at 937-641-5871.
