What Epic is doing with Apple, Google + Microsoft

Epic has been working with Big Tech companies lately to help hospitals and health systems better manage their EHRs.

Here are three such developments reported by Becker's since Nov. 14:

1. Jefferson Health is migrating functionality of its Epic EHR system to Microsoft Azure in a bid to secure, improve and optimize IT service delivery. The Philadelphia-based health system said Nov. 29 the move will give it access to more than 200 Azure products and services for data security services and disaster recovery capabilities.

2. Epic is updating its EHR capabilities to become more compatible with Apple's Mac operating system, an Epic spokesperson told Becker's on Nov. 23. The EHR vendor is working to make Hyperdrive, its specialized browser client, available on Mac computers sometime in 2023.

3. Google Cloud and Epic reached an agreement Nov. 14 to enable health systems to migrate their EHRs to the cloud, while Edison, N.J.-based Hackensack Meridian Health will be the first organization to do so.
