1. More than 250 million patients have electronic records in Epic.

2. Epic has 28 percent of the acute care hospital market, according to a KLAS report.

3. There were 163 hospitals with 500-plus beds that used Epic in 2018, the most recent year reported. The second most-used EHR in that group was Cerner, with 77 hospitals that have 500 or more beds.

4. Epic implementation among small practices is increasing as those practices with one to 10 physicians join or affiliate with larger organizations.
