New York-based United Health Services is transitioning to Epic, according to a report from the Press & Sun-Bulletin, a local New York publication.

Four things to know:

1. The health system aims to debut the new EHR and billing system Sept. 12. 

2. The health system made the switch to enhance the patient billing experience, according to Christina Boyd, UHS vice president for community relations. Patients can also view their medication lists and update insurance information online through the patient portal.

3. Patients with accounts on the new EHR system will be able to download their medical records and save health summaries to a USB drive.

4. Epic will replace UHS' nearly 20-year-old recordkeeping system.
