The names behind Epic's products

Epic gives its products short, fun names that make it simple to understand what they do, founder and CEO Judy Faulkner wrote Aug. 7.

Here are the names behind some of the EHR vendor's most famous products, according to the blog post:

1. Epic: "a Greek poem ('a glorious recounting of events'), the story of the patient. Did you know that our other EHR versions are also poems or songs? Sonnet (a Shakespearean poem: a smaller version of Epic), Canto (a song for the tablet), Haiku (for the phone), and Limerick (for the watch). These remind us that even though we're programmers, we're literate. If we ever do a ring, it will be Chirp."

2. Beans: "our kidney system."

3. Phoenix: "transplant."

4. Wisdom: "dental, of course."

5. Care Everywhere: "the name we use for our interoperability system makes me feel good. We didn't have to think of this name: it just showed up spontaneously."

6. Stork: "obstetrics."

7. Bones: "orthopedics."

8. Bugsy: "infection control."

9. Comfort: "hospice."

10. Grand Central: "patient flow."

11. Cheers: "customer relationship management ('where everybody knows your name')."

12. MyChart: "known countrywide."

13. Hello World: "communication."

14. Happy Together: "putting all your MyCharts in one place (and because I had just returned from my daughter's wedding, where she and her new husband danced to the Turtles' music)."
