Beaver Medical Group and its management company EPIC Management, LP, have announced the upcoming launch of Epic Systems electronic health records (EHR) system, the most advanced, widely used and comprehensive health record and practice management system in the United States.
Epic Systems (no relation to EPIC Management, LP) will replace multiple systems now in use and provide an integrated technology platform supporting the patient’s total care journey across all doctors and specialties, including care provided outside of Beaver’s network.
All organizations using Epic Systems interoperate, allowing healthcare professionals to easily view patient history and data. This enables a fluid, fast transfer of health information, closing care gaps and reducing duplication.
“Epic offers cutting-edge technology with a proven emphasis on privacy and data protection that puts patients first and simplifies the healthcare process,” said Lorenzo Obregon, chief information officer at EPIC Management. “With Epic Systems EHR we will be able to improve clinical efficiency, boost patient safety and streamline patient-provider communication.”
Epic Systems products are used by a majority of U.S. News & World Report’s top-ranked hospitals and medical schools. Its MyChart patient portal gives patients the ability to schedule appointments, view health information, pay bills, request refills, receive health reminders and communicate with their doctors’ offices from a mobile device or computer.
