18 hospitals opting for Epic in 2023

Epic Systems continues to be the leader in the EHR hospital market share, with 83 hospitals joining its network in 2022, according to research from KLAS

This brought in 14,330 beds into Epic's network, giving the vendor the biggest hospital market share, with nearly 36 percent of the acute care hospitals in the U.S. using its platform.

This gain is being attributed to Epic gaining traction with bigger systems. Here are 18 hospitals and health systems opting for an Epic EHR system in 2023, as reported by Becker's since Jan. 23:
