Scripps Health selects Epic for EHR

Scripps Health in San Diego has chosen Epic to provide its EHR system.

The health system is still in the final stages of selection of which products it will implement. Epic will replace Scripps' current ambulatory and inpatient EHR and revenue cycle management systems. System design will begin in mid-2015 and implementation is planned to begin in mid-2017, subject to approval by Scripps Health's board of trustees, according to a news release.

"This system will touch every clinical process and every caregiver at Scripps," said James LaBelle, MD, Scripps CMO, in the news release. "The new tools and functionality available on the Epic platform will allow our physicians, nurses, technicians and staff to work more efficiently and collaboratively to meet the needs of our patients. And it will allow patients to interact with caregivers in the timely management of their care."

Scripps operates five acute care hospitals, hospice and home health care services, 26 outpatient centers and clinics and hundreds of physician offices throughout the region.
