Mayo completes Epic transition with Arizona, Florida go-lives

Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic completed its "Plummer Project," the name given to its systemwide rollout of a new Epic EHR, the health system confirmed Oct. 8.

The final three sites — Mayo's campuses in Jacksonville, Fla., and Phoenix and Scottsdale, Ariz. — went live on Epic Oct. 6, placing all Mayo locations on a single integrated EHR and revenue cycle management system. About 52,000 Mayo employees are using Epic in 90 hospitals and clinics throughout the health system.

Mayo Clinic began its transition to Epic at its Wisconsin locations in July 2017, followed by some of its Minnesota locations in November 2017. Its headquarters in Rochester, Minn., implemented the EHR in May.

"The commitment and expertise of outstanding Mayo staff, Epic colleagues and implementation partners brought us to this day," said Richard Gray, MD, co-chair of the initiative. "We envision even greater collaboration among experts in delivering the patient care, research and education that are hallmarks of Mayo."

The project was named to honor Henry Plummer, MD, who created the first patient-centered health record at Mayo Clinic more than a century ago.
