Memorial Hermann switching from Oracle Cerner to Epic for EHR

Houston-based Memorial Hermann Health System is switching its EHR vendor from Oracle Cerner to Epic.

Once the transition is complete, all Memorial Hermann locations will use the same Epic EHR system. The implementation will begin in early 2023 and take multiple years, according to the Sept. 30 Memorial Hermann news release.

"Partnering with Epic and transitioning to a single, unified EHR platform will have profound benefits for our patients, as well as our physicians and health care providers," Jamie McCarthy, MD, executive vice president and chief physician executive for Memorial Hermann, said in the release. "A unified system will alleviate common pain points experienced by our physicians and clinicians when working within the EHR, enabling them to focus more deeply on patients' long-term health care journeys and overall well-being."
