Mount Sinai sees big gains from moving Epic to the cloud

As New York City-based Mount Sinai moves its Epic EHR system to Microsoft's cloud, it has been able to use new technologies such as artificial intelligence to drive greater efficiencies, as well as improve its cybersecurity posture. 

"This digital transformation is allowing us to leverage new technologies — like artificial intelligence — to improve our business structure and drive efficiencies to deliver on our mission of providing compassionate care," Kristin Myers, executive vice president, chief digital and information officer, and dean for digital and information technology at Mount Sinai, said in a Sept. 27 news release from Accenture.

Accenture, a business management consultant that helped the health system with the transition to Microsoft Azure, will also work with Mount Sinai to develop a foundation for AI. 

According to the news release, the AI foundation will allow Mount Sinai to scale new services and capabilities.

In addition to this, the transition of Epic to the cloud is also driving on-premise infrastructure cost savings and has enhanced its security measures and protocols. 

The health system began transitioning its Epic EHR system to Microsoft Azure in June 2022.
