EpicCare Software


 

Epic Systems’ EpicCare is an electronic medical records (EMR) solution for large hospitals and healthcare systems, certified for Meaningful Use Stages 1 and 2.

EpicCare was entirely developed, implemented and is supported by an in-house team. Although they have under 300 clients, EpicCare systems are used by one out of every four physicians nationwide.

Modules include dashboards that combine and display clinical and financial metrics as well as customizable templates.

EpicCare also provides a patient portal and e-prescribing as part of Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements, supports telemedicine options that allow doctors to communicate with patients via a video platform and offers mobile and tablet functionality.

EpicCare was named the number-one overall software suite by KLAS in 2013, and was identified as a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant in 2012.

I find this the best EMR system. It is very easy to navigate between documents and write orders & notes. A lot of valuable presets and ability to create templates. As a med student I used a lot of different systems and this is my favorite!

Epic is filled full of robust features and is way to use in terms of navigation.

Likes Least

The software is very elaborate and can be timely to learn how to fully use all of the features.

Recommendations

Be patient and don't be afraid to demo a product a few times. Your time is not wasted if you are critically thinking about the product and how it would improve your workflows.

Epic is by far one of the easiest software to use and it can be configure to meet the needs of any health care enterprise or small doctors's office.

Likes Least

The only negative comment regarding Epic is the lack of compatibility with anesthesia codes and chargers.

Recommendations

In my professional opinions EpicCare is the best and most reliable EHR system in the market right now... Reason why its taking all the big players' market share.

The accountability and navigation are great! I love that reviewing pts charts are so much easier than other programs. Also, the Care Everywhere function is great!

I really haven't encountered anything that I really don't like about this product.

Recommendations

I would say the Output charting in Epic is amazing and a great way to keep all members of the heath care team in the loop about pt care.

Fairly easy to learn and use. It has all the information needed to access pt medical history, test results, drug guides and new and old orders.

Likes Least

Instruction on use of product was weak. I kept looking for a back button. I need to emphasize that there is no back button. Too many columns for procedure documentation. What about care plans? Seem to be fading.

Recommendations

I thought the triage/secondary assessment was long and confusing. It could be combined with a big highlight where the assessment left off for interruptions.

EPIC covers almost every facet of EHR & PM in a unified interface.

Likes Least

Slow response in large practice. There's too much "data input" required directly by MD/NP providers which would normally be delegated to a nurse assistant or medical technicial.

Recommendations

Ensure that your "build" of EPIC matches your practice's environment. In example, default "hospital" build is much less functional that specialized ambulatory medicine (custom) build out.

It's similar to other systems, so I'm able to navigate through CareEverywhere for patient care coordination

Likes Least

There are too many clicks to get anything done - there are multiple places where information duplicates (needs to be entered more than once).

Recommendations

It is a common system, but has some bugs that never seem to be improved.

I like the flexibility and interoperability of the system for healthcare.

Likes Least

The system was built off the ambulatory suite, so inpatient elements can be irelevant.

Recommendations

Allow for a broader implementation timeline then you think you'll need.

Inability to easily convert smartphrases and preferences from one Epic site to another Epic account at a different facility/health care organization.

Recommendations

It seems that this will be one of the premier EHR platforms in the future, at least in the NW U.S. It may be worth investing in it now rather than having to switch EHRs in the future.

Integrated system. It has patient-specific information and is not tied just to encounters.

Likes Least

There are too many clicks and fields to fill out. It has no tolerance for incorrectly spelled medications or diagnoses.

Recommendations

Make sure that you get an EMR that fits the needs of your organization.

I am just an end user, I did not have an opportunity to choose between diferent software. My hospital uses this.

Likes Least

I like it for the very reason it was invented: to keep data in one place and to avoid duplication, repetition and endless busy work that previous charting represented.

Recommendations

I don't have any recommendations. Answer the questions if you are a user, it is straight forward and hopefully you will have more to say than myself.

It is very user friendly and easy to learn. It did not take a long time to get used to. It is one software system - place the order and charting. I can pull all date from other hospital where EpicCare is used.

Likes Least

There isn't anything I dislike about the product.

Recommendations

Some features need to be added, like being able to change the time of charting. If I place a long charting time, I have to erase all date-unable to change the charting time. Neuro assessment does not have a lot of options-I need to make a note a lot due to lack of options.
