St. Mark's Hospital - November 01, 2016

On Saturday, November 12th, our electronic medical record system was upgraded to Epic 2015. This upgrade included more than 4,000 enhancements i that streamline our medical record documentation and make the electronic interface more intuitive. The Epic team was on site and readily available to assist staff in navigating the changes and to address any problems that arose. There were very few problems, evidence that our Epic team had done a top notch job at anticipatory testing and validating the changes prior to implementation. A problem in the ability to view radiology images in Epic was called out by one of our cardiovascular surgeons and rapidly addressed because assistance was readily available.

Kudos! to the Epic team for their excellent execution of this upgrade!
