All of US News' top 20 hospitals use Epic

U.S. News & World Report released its Best Hospitals rankings for 2018-19 on Aug. 14, and Becker's Hospital Review looked into which EHRs the top 20 institutions are using — across the board, the answer was Epic.  

This year's rankings compared more than 4,500 medical centers across 25 specialties, procedures and conditions. These hospitals have historically set precedents for care delivery, treatments and technology use.

As was the case with last year's ranking, all of the 20 top-ranked hospitals are either live on Epic or in the midst of a transition to the Verona, Wis.-based company's software, a company spokesperson confirmed to Becker's Hospital Review.

The spokesperson referred comment to the following statement on Epic's website: "The Epic Community is a worldwide group of healthcare organizations collaborating to improve patient care, innovate healthcare delivery and achieve financial health."
