Epic in the last 30 days

From backing a new health data initiative to seeing its workforce jump in size by 18 percent since 2021, here are eight updates on Epic's operations, software products and partnerships reported by Becker's Hospital Review in July:

  • Corvallis, Ore.-based Samaritan Health Services is replacing its telehealth platform with one from Epic, dubbed Epic Video Client.
  • A circuit court ruled that it would not lower Epic's $140 million in compensatory damages that it is supposed to receive from Mumbai, India-based Tata Consultancy Services due to an ongoing trades secret case.

  • Epic opposed some proposed changes by ONC. The vendor opposed the transparency requirements for certified health IT developers' predictive decision support models, saying they would hurt innovation, and said the definition of the predictive model should be limited to clinical or cognitive computing rather than administrative or operational tools.

  • Epic has seen an 18 percent jump in its workforce size since 2021.

  • Community health organizations in Connecticut, North Carolina, Arizona and Idaho went live with OCHIN's Epic.

  • Epic Systems said it is working on streamlining communications between healthcare providers and insurance companies, as the vendor says the process is time-consuming. 

  • Epic Systems, Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Healthcare and Optum have pledged their support for the Sequoia Project's new health data, dubbed Data Usability Taking Root, that aims to make healthcare data more useful.

  • Epic is planning a sixth campus for its Wisconsin headquarters and submitted plans to its home city of Verona, Wis., calling for five buildings and a 5.5-acre, 4-story underground parking structure with 2,050 spaces.
