Epic to host its 1st-ever conference for providers who don't use its EHR

Epic is planning its first Un-Users Group Meeting, slated for Sept. 26, which targets healthcare executives and strategic leaders who don't use Epic, but want to exchange health information with providers on Epic in their communities.

Hosted at Epic's Verona, Wis.-based headquarters, unUGM falls about one month after Epic's Users Group Meeting Aug. 27-30, the company's annual conference that brings together executives and providers whose organizations use the EHR platform.

According to a schedule posted on the unUGM event website, attendees will get a "crash course" in all the ways they can exchange patient data with Epic-hosted providers, such as Carequality, Care Everywhere and health information exchange networks.

In a panel discussion with Sacramento, Calif.-based Sutter Health Clinical Informatics Director Steven Lane, MD, and Dallas-based Children's Health System of Texas Chief Health Information Management and Exchange Officer Katherine Lusk, attendees will hear interoperability success stories between non-Epic and Epic EHRs. Epic population health leaders will also hold a discussion on the current state of coordinated care in the U.S. and explore ways to use existing tools to close care gaps, improve communication and reduce costs.

Registration for the one-day event closes Sept. 14. Click here for more information.
