6 health systems opting for Epic EHR systems

Below are six health systems that launched a new Epic EHR system or announced plans to do so since Oct. 10. 

  1. Aspen (Colo.) Valley Hospital went live with its $16 million Epic EHR installation on Oct. 1. The hospital's board of directors approved the switch from Meditech to Epic on June 13, 2021.

  2. Gillette, Wyo.-based Campbell County Health is switching EHRs from Meditech to Epic in a move that will cost $8 million.

  3. Aitkin, Minn.-based Riverwood Healthcare Center's board has approved funds for the health system to transition to an Epic EHR system. The new system will replace the hospital's current system that is hosted by Minneapolis-based Allina Health.

  4. Fergus Falls, Minn.-based Lake Region Healthcare is spending $25 million to unify its three EHR systems with Epic. The transition, which was set to be completed on Nov. 1, was made possible through a partnership with Sioux Falls, S.D.-based Sanford Health as the Epic Community Connect host.

  5. Akron, Ohio-based Summa Health partnered with IT consultancy Brightwork Health to implement Epic's EHR system. The new implementation, which involved 65 Brightwork staff members and 95 Summa Health Epic project team members, will allow the health system to have a unified health record system.

  6. Baton Rouge, La.-based Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center and Zachary, La.-based Lane Regional Medical Center have entered into a formal agreement to share an Epic EHR system. The implementation of the new system will begin in early 2024.
