Seward Community Health Center to go live on Epic EHR

Seward (Ala.) Community Health Center plans to implement Epic's EHR system starting Oct. 31.

The implementation will put SCHC on the same system used by Renton, Wash.-based Providence Health and Services facilities, including Providence Seward (Ala.) Medical and Care Center. PSMCC is in the same building as SCHC. SCHC will be able to connect with physicians from more than 34 hospitals and 475 clinics once the facility goes live,

SCHC did not name a specific go-live date.

"The board of directors and staff of the health center are very excited about working on the Epic system through the shared arrangement offered by the Providence Health and Services Community Connect Program," said SCHC Executive Director Patrick Linton. "Not only is this a superior system in terms of functionality, the ability of our providers to monitor clinical information for their patients through the same system used by the hospital and other Providence facilities is beneficial in many ways."
