What is Epic?

Epic is one of the leading electronic health records (EHR) systems on the market today. Used by more than 300 health care organizations nationwide, to-date, over 54 percent of the U.S. population have their medical records in an Epic system.

From clinical documentation and shared communication, to a user-friendly patient portal, automated prescription prompting and patient visit follow-up, Epic EHR was built as a fully integrated system, and incorporates clinical documentation from all areas of patient care into a single database.

By implementing Epic, we will enable each patient to have one seamless health record across all BJC and Washington University School of Medicine facilities. But Epic is not just a system. It is an example of the shared commitment held by BJC and WUSM to provide exceptional care for all patients.
