Middle Park Medical Center chooses Epic's EHR

Kremmling, Colo.-based Middle Park Medical Center has selected Epic's EHR, according to a Ski Hi Daily News report.

The hospital selected Epic partly because its managing company, Engelwood, Colo.-based Centura Health, is transitioning to Epic's EHR also, with the first batch of hospitals going live in May 2016. Middle Park Medical Center will implement Centura's Epic software, according to the report.

Centura originally had some reservations about MPMC's ability to prepare for a go-live in the system's first waves of go-lives, saying they were concerned about subjecting MPMC to the troubleshooting accompanying any new software implementation, according to the report. Now, MPMC and Centura must finalize negotiation contracts before MPMC can begin implementing the software.

"I think it's just a big win for us to be able to come down to an organization that big and be able to convince them that we're really state-of-the-art with our infrastructure and we're able to take this type of a project on," said Trampas Hutches, CIO and COO of Middle Park Medical Center, in the report.

Mr. Hutches said in the report the final cost of the implementation would approximately $1.3 million. MPMC will be the first managed affiliate hospital of Centura's to use the health system's software, and the hospital plans to adopt the new EHR in September 2016, according to the report.
