University Hospitals eyes unified Epic EHR in 2023

University Hospitals in Cleveland aims to have a unified EHR platform by the end of 2023.

Cliff A. Megerian, MD, CEO of University Hospitals, told Becker's the health system is working on a full transition to Epic EHR, bringing together its hospitals, primary care and specialty physician practices, UH Home Care and more.

"With the goal of being the most trusted healthcare partner in Northeast Ohio, we are investing in a new nervous system for the entire organization that will transform how we deliver care by improving the overall patient and caregiver experience, better empowering patients to access their personal health information and interact with their providers, and by advancing our population health analytics," he said.

The EHR implementation brings together more than 80 work groups, 75 modules and 400 interfaces. It will take 18,000 build configuration tasks, 140 data conversion extracts and 11,000 building block decisions to complete the project. University Hospitals has also supported more than 1,000 EHR accreditations for the implementation.

"The financial and manpower investment we are making with this implementation is just one example of our commitment to our patients, our caregivers and the communities we serve," said Dr. Megerian.
