Product Quick Facts
Founded in 1979, Epic provides electronic medical record (EMR) systems, practice management software, and hospital information systems for mid-sized and large medical groups, hospitals, and integrated healthcare organizations.
Epic’s EpicCare Ambulatory EMR platform is ideal for use by large hospital systems and multi-location practices. This EMR solution includes an intuitive “Smart Software” feature used to learn user preferences, guide actions and suggest corrections. Epic’s EMR solutions work well for hospital systems seeking an efficient, intuitive, and secure method of managing electronic medical records. This platform can be personalized to fit the preferences of each physician, and includes filtering tools designed to make the process of chart review more efficient. Workflow management is streamlined through the program’s task bundling feature. EpicCare Ambulatory EMR enables patient-entered information from MyChart to automatically sync with EpicCare’s chart, a feature not available with other programs. This platform also expedites note-taking with speech recognition features and NoteWriter, a feature that allows physicians to catalog their every clinical observation. EpicCare Ambulatory EMR’s telemedicine option is an excellent feature for encouraging patient engagement and reducing expenses. EpicCare maintains strict compliance with privacy regulations and includes advanced metrics to evaluate quality, productivity and financial data.
Additionally, Epic offers their Resolute / Prelude / Cadence practice management systems to large clinics and hospitals. Practice management, or hospital information systems, enables provider organizations to have more insight and control over the entire administrative process; Epic practice management software handles the entire experience, from pre-registration to collections and all steps in between.
EpicCare Ambulatory EMR has been implemented by 100% of HIMSS Stage 7 hospital systems. The Deaconess network of hospitals, clinics and specialty centers implemented EpicCare Ambulatory EMR as the foundation for their CareConnect service. Deaconess’s medical team is now equipped to improve their coordination of care, increase their productivity and provide better health care services for patients throughout Deaconess’s more than 20 facilities.
