McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital now live on Epic EHR after $9.5M investment

As of July 1, McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital in Oxford, Ohio, has gone live on Epic's EHR platform, according to a Journal-News report.

The implementation was part of McCullough-Hyde Memorial's recent affiliation agreement with Cincinnati-based TriHealth, in which the health system committed $17 million to the hospital, $9.5 million of which was allotted to installing and launching Epic, according to the report.

In addition to its EHR, McCullough-Hyde replaced all its IT systems with those used by TriHealth's, a process the hospital called "the Big Bang," which included payroll, accounting, billing, purchasing, pharmacy, laboratory and email.

The hospital hopes its affiliated physician offices will also adopt Epic's EHR platform, Pam Collins, chief patient services officer of McCullough-Hyde, told Journal-News.
