190 health systems to launch Epic before end of year

Epic is having a busy fall, triggered by health systems getting ready for brand-new surges of COVID-19 and influenza season.
From September to the end of the year, 190 health systems are going cope with the Epic EHR system, marking its busiest fall season, according to the company. Health systems in 9 nations including Australia, Belgium, Canada, Saudi Arabia and the U.S. are introducing Epic EHR. The companies consist of 123,000 doctors, nurses and support personnel.
Some health systems accelerated their execution to have the systems up ahead of the influenza season and renewal of COVID-19. New York City City-based NewYork-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine moved up plans to go live at three healthcare facilities before late fall.
” We trained 16,000 users virtually, linked to Epics command center in Wisconsin, and had regular video check-ins with crucial user groups,” said NewYork-Presbyterian Group Senior Vice President and CIO Daniel Barchi. “With a really successful go-live behind us, our clinicians remain in the best position to react to whatever challenges the winter brings.”
Legendary has partnered with Lyft in recent weeks to enable healthcare providers to coordinate transport directly through the EHR and worked together with InterSystems data platform to give clinicians access to larger datasets and information about patient care.
