Feature Release Information 

An Epic feature release is the process of moving from one version of Epic to a newer version of Epic. Just like your cell phone, the Epic1 system at BJC also needs to install periodic updates to ensure the system is operating at its best capacity.  

BJC and WUSM are on Epic's quarterly feature release schedule. This schedule calls for us to install new releases, or updates, four times per year. Each of these feature releases is named after the month and year in which the release became available from Epic. BJC’s and WUSM’s Epic1 system is currently operating on the May 2022 version of Epic.   

Our most recent feature release took place on November 13, 2022.Therefore, the next feature release is scheduled for Sunday, April 16, 2023, when we move to the November 2022 version of Epic. As with all feature releases, a few days prior to its installation, some components of the system may not be available for the update to successfully install. Details to follow as the next Feature Release on 04/16/23 approaches.
