California home health agency launches Epic EHR

Pathways, a Sunnyvale, Calif.-based home health and hospice agency, launched Epic's EHR system Nov. 1.

Founded in 1977, Pathways has been affiliated with Mountain View, Calif.-based El Camino Hospital and Redwood City, Calif.-based Sequoia Hospital since 1986. Its offices are in Sunnyvale, South San Francisco and Oakland, Calif.

The agency expects the Epic implementation process to take approximately one year.

"We refer to the Epic system as a 'One Patient, One Record' reality. Epic creates a shared longitudinal record across a patient's entire life, which improves overall quality and the accuracy of diagnoses and outcomes," said Pathways CEO Barbara Burgess.
