2. The clinic, which comprises more than 200 providers across nine locations, has been working on the project for the past 18 months.

3. By switching to Epic, Longstreet Clinic will use the same EHR system and be able to share patient health information with fellow Georgia-based healthcare providers Northeast Georgia Health System in Gainesville.

4. The clinic's patients will also gain access to Epic's patient portal MyChart, which they can use to view their medical records, make appointments and message their providers from a computer or mobile device.
