Health systems forge ahead with Epic transitions

In 2023, Becker'sreported on 18 hospitals and health systems looking to switch over to an Epic EHR system, and although installs are slated to take a couple of months, many organizations are making significant progress.

On Feb. 3, Tony Qualls, director of IT service delivery for Altamonte Springs, Fla.-based AdventHealth shared that the organization had completed its $660 million Epic install that began in 2020. The health system made the switch from an Oracle Health EHR system. 

Houston-based Memorial Hermann Health System is also in the midst of an Epic EHR install and recently reached a new milestone. Eric Smith, chief digital officer of the organization, shared via LinkedIn Feb. 6 that the organization was 107 days away from the anticipated transition date for the first wave of clinics and providers.

The health system has already successfully conducted its first go-live readiness assessment with the new EHR. 

New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based Northwell Health, which announced that it would be moving from an Allscripts EHR system to an Epic one in March 2023, is also making progress with its installation. 

Brian Blaufeux, MD, regional chief medical information officer for Northwell, posted on LinkedIn that the health system is more than halfway through its build phase.
