Epic at Montefiore: Be a Part of the Future of Healthcare
In the early 1990s, Montefiore became one of the nation's first adopters of electronic health records. Since that time, we have maintained an information technology leadership position and have achieved several significant milestones along the way.
This is one reason why we're so excited about Epic— an electronic medical record (EMR) system that provides patient-centric applications to integrate healthcare information across an organization. Epic is currently is used by over 270 health systems, including academic medical centers and large integrated delivery systems.
In early 2014, Montefiore will join the growing list by beginning the implementation of Epic to support a variety of functions, including clinical and financial systems, registration and scheduling, and the ability of patients to access their information.
Among other things, Epic will allow providers to access patient records anywhere in the system. Patients will also be able to see key parts of their medical records through a secure patient portal. This seamless electronic medical records system will allow us to:
- Enhance the safety, quality efficiency and convenience of our care delivery system.
- Transform the patient experience.
- Foster greater advances in research, clinical connectivity and other innovations.
Epic at Montefiore is an innovative initiative and a project of considerable scope, touching all areas of the organization.
