4 Epic updates in 30 days

From inking three EHR deals with health systems to reports on its sepsis model accuracy, here are four updates on Epic's operations, software products and partnerships reported by Becker's Hospital Review in the past month:

  1. Boston Children's Hospital said it plans to switch to Epic for its EHR in 2024.

  2. Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Health will move from Cerner to Epic Systems by the end of 2025.

  3. Pittsburgh-based UPMC will transfer 6 million patient records from nine EHRs to Epic Systems.

  4. Epic's sepsis prediction model was found to be more accurate than other models at higher threshold prediction, but was found to have missed a higher share of true cases and was less timely than other existing sepsis tools, an Aug. 25 study published in JAMA found. The EHR vendor told Becker's it updated its version of the sepsis predictive model and that the JAMA study does not reflect the performance of its updated model.
