Hospitals Switching to Epic
From Becker’s HEALTH IT Aug 2022
Noted on Becker’s today. Valley Health looks like it runs Epic currently, just not it’s own managed system. There has been a lot of uncertainty surrounding Oracle purchase of Cerner. On LinkedIn there are reports of layoffs at Oracle (not formally acknowledged) and the VA morass is just an albatross hanging around Oracles neck. For more information email [email protected]
Below are four health systems that launched a new Epic EHR system or announced plans to do so since June 16.
- Piedmont (Atlanta) launched Epic’s EHR system at multiple locations
- St. Dominic Hospital (Jackson, Miss.)
- MarinHealth Medical Center (Greenbrae, Calif.) received $20 million from the state to help install its Epic EHR system. MarinHealth is replacing its current EHR system with Epic EHR in collaboration with the University of California San Francisco Medical Center and aims to have the EHR fully installed and in service by August.
- Valley Health (Winchester, Va.) is spending $50 million to install their own Epic EHR system after using the EHR through a partnership with Falls Church, Va.-based Inova Health System since 2014.
