Prepare for an Epic Upgrade

On March 12, 2017, Epic will be upgrading to the 2015 version.

Our top priority is making sure patient care remains uninterrupted. Throughout the process, Epic users will have access to training, upgrade previews, and support to prepare for the changes it will bring. The Information Systems team that implements the upgrade will use a method that minimizes the amount of system downtime.

Go-live Timeline

Here is the timeline of the Epic upgrade:

January 16 – February 24 System Testing
February 23 End User Online Training Available
February 24 – March 24 Freeze of Epic Changes
March 3 – 12 Lockdown of Epic Production Files
March 12 Epic Version 2015 Go-live

 

Improvements

This Epic upgrade includes enhancements that will:

  • Boost productivity in patient visits through redesigned Chart Review and ability to customize Epic work space.
  • Create inpatient efficiency with note attribution and sleeker patient lists.

Prepare for the upgrade

Users can visit the intranet page for details and resources (Resources > Epic > Epic 2015 Upgrade).

Online training will be available February 23  on the intranet page and may include a mix of HealthStream videos, webinars, presentations, and tip sheets. More information on training to come–keep an eye out for upcoming IS Notifications via email.
