TRADITION

Detroit network
focuses on business
acumen, diversity
By MICHAEL SUGERMAN
Daily StaffReporter
For the student-run Detroit
Entrepreneurship Network, the
city of Detroit is ahub of potential
- not just for growing businesses,
but also for creating relationships
that span geographic and socio-
economic boundaries.
The network, known more
casually as d[en], holds an annual
entrepreneurship program for
high school students both from
the heart of Detroit and the city's
suburbs. It recruits students from
18 schools and boasted 50 partici-
pants in 2013.
Established in 2012, the
program has run from mid-
November through April - with
two-hour student- and profes-
sionally-taught business work-
shops held in a Detroit workspace
on a bi-weekly basis.
This year's program will start
in January, later than it has in the
past, in order to align with the

start of the Winter 2015semester.
To compensate for the lost time,
workshops will last three hours
instead of two and the students
involved may consider meeting
on a weekly basis for the first
month.
Business junior Nick Resn-
ick, d[en] co-president, said
the program's mission is two-
pronged. The first part, he said,
is giving students the entrepre-
neurial toolkit to improve their
communities. The second part
goes beyond business acumen to
addressing diversity awareness.
"We want to promote dia-
logue and collaboration between
people of different backgrounds,
different races, socioeconomic
situations, everything like that,"
Resnick said.
"We don't want to just focus on
kids from Detroit. We want to get
high school students from Detroit,
along with across the suburbs, and
bring them to these workshops
and have them work with people
that they would otherwise never
talk to and never get the pleasure
of meeting," he said.
Aside from the workshops,
Resnick said students also split

UHS faces
adjustment
as records
go digital
After rough start,
new system offers
benefits to patients
By AMABEL KAROUB
Daily StaffReporter
After a shaky start, the Uni-
versity of Michigan Health Sys-
tem is settling into its new and
improved filingsystem.
In summer 2012, UMHS made
anenormousshift-moving from
paper medical charts to Epic, an
electronic health records sys-
tem. The UMHS version of Epic
is called MiChart. Two and a half
years later, University Health
Service, the primary source of
health care services for the cam-
pus community, is beginning to
take advantage of Epic and its
many features.
Epic currently holds the medi-
cal records of nearly half the
patients in the United States. A
version of Epic comparable to
UHS' MiChart has been adopted
by every medical center in the
health system. However, in an
interview in September 2013 -
