The Epic EHR system will be implemented across BJC and Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) in a series of go-live events starting in Q2 2017. While the exact details of each go-live are still in development, the sequence of sites have been confirmed.
Many factors were considered in the selection of this timeline - including safety, staffing levels, geographic location, and specific impacts to each facility. While there are pros and cons to any sequencing proposal, leadership is confident this is the best plan to effectively transition all of BJC and WUSM to a single integrated system. We will continue to provide updates as details are finalized.
