Chesapeake Regional Medical Center to implement Epic EHR

Chesapeake (Va.) Regional Medical Center will gradually introduce an Epic EHR system over the course of two years.

The hospital has contracted help from Good Help Connections, a subsidiary of Marriotsville, Md.-based Bon Secours Health System, to ease the transition. CRMC has had an EHR system for approximately 20 years, but the transition to Epic will more closely align the hospital with the local healthcare marketplace and improve clinician interaction, according to the Daily Press.

CRMC is also the first non-Bon Secours Health System hospital to use the Good Help Connections, a consultation company that helps hospitals and health systems transition to an EHR. Bon Secours operates 19 acute care facilities and uses an Epic system.

"Moving to the Epic platform is a momentous step for our organization and will heighten our ability to communicate with other health systems for the benefit of the patient," said Ken Deans, vice president and CIO for CRMC. "We are very pleased and excited to bring its world class strengths and capabilities to our patients and providers in Chesapeake."
