Epic EHR Upgrade
From Beckers Hospital Review – 8/2/2022
Winchester, Va.-based healthcare system Valley Health is spending $50 million to install their own Epic EHR system, the Northern Virginia Daily reported August 1.
Valley Health has used Epic EHR through a partnership with Falls Church, Va.-based Inova Health System since 2014. Valley Health is installing its own upgraded version of the Epic EHR system with the goal of improving flexibility and maintaining independence.
The project is slated for completion in November 2023.
“This is a pretty major endeavor for us,” said Valley Health President and CEO Mark Nantz. “It’s a big lift. Most of you who were here back in 2012 and 2014, it was a lot of work then and it will be a lot of work now. But it will be our own.”
Valley Health will maintain its partnership with Inova during the transition.
