Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital moving to Epic EHR

St. Petersburg, Fla.-based Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital will transition to an Epic EHR to be on the same system as all other Johns Hopkins Medicine entities.

The schedule for Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital's move to Epic has not yet been finalized, a hospital spokesperson said in an emailed statement to Becker's Hospital Review. Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins Medicine first implemented Epic five years ago across all its facilities, excluding JHACH.

Johns Hopkins employees were notified June 20 of the project, and JHACH is currently conducting a review process of its information systems and applications inventory to choose which electronic systems will be replaced by Epic.

"The 80-plus employees who currently support these systems will be involved in planning for the consolidation, and in many cases, will be involved in continuing support for the systems that will be retained," the spokesperson wrote.
