  • EVE is now a historical viewer (see Available Data diagram below).
  • New Dictation phone numbers are active.
  • Patient MRN numbers will remain up-to-date in EVE.

Below you’ll find the Change Notice:

Changes to Transcribed Documents and Discontinuation of Lab feeds to EVE

On June 24th, all dictating authors using Central Transcription Services will be impacted by the C&W site-wide deployment of the new M*Modal dictation/Transcription system. All transcribed reports will be viewed, edited, and signed in the Cerner PowerChart Message Center.

Message Center





Ensure you have access to PowerChart (eChart) by completing the on-line training course in the Learning Hub: Cerner (eChart) – All Staff and Clinicians (3 brief courses, including e-Sign and Viewing Results).

Of particular importance is to complete the Message Centre – Signing Transcribed Documents course which reviews the NEW WAY OF SIGNING YOUR REPORTS. Reports are only distributed once they are signed. The time period for reports to be signed remains at 14 days.

Transcribed reports in EVE will only be available for pre June 24th historical data. Reports dictated prior to June 24th will still need to be signed in EVE.

Dictation ID can be obtained M-F 8:00 to 4:00 from Transcriptions Services 604-806-9696 or email transcriptionalerts2@vch.ca

The following Lab feeds to EVE are discontinued as of 12:00 25th June. The information from these systems will now be sent to Cerner PowerChart (eChart):
