NORTHSTAR Health System to implement Epic

Iron River, Mich.-based NORTHSTAR Health System will go-live on Epic's EHR platform next month, according to an UP Matters report.

The scheduled go-live date for the health system in Michigan's Upper Peninsula is Aug. 23.

Last summer, Wausau, Wis.-based Aspirus acquired NORTHSTAR Health System, and other Aspirus facilities in the Upper Peninsula adopted Epic's platform. Now, NORTHSTAR will be able to more easily exchange data with these providers.

Additionally, the health system is launching a patient portal called MyAspirus.
