Orlando Health to switch to Epic

Orlando (Fla.) Health confirmed plans on Dec. 14 to transition to a new Epic EHR that the health system is calling a comprehensive health record.

The health system hopes that once the new Epic EHR system is fully integrated, it will better connect all of its all hospitals, physician practices and outpatient care centers. The move will also consolidate patients' information into one health record comprising their entire care journey.

"There's a growing need for system efficiency and simplicity in our operations," David Strong, president and CEO of Orlando Health, said in a news release. "The comprehensive health record will not only allow such, but also it will facilitate information sharing that empowers physicians and assists them with providing seamless and timely care."

Orlando Health plans to begin its Epic implementation in March 2019 and expects full deployment to be completed by 2021.
