Mayo Clinic Selects Epic to Build Integrated EHR-RCM System
The Mayo Clinic has selected Epic to be its vendor in creating a single, integrated electronic health record and revenue cycle management system, replacing three EHRs that are currently being used.
With our staff working together on a common system, we will be able to accelerate innovation, enhance services and provide a better experience for our patients, said Dawn Milliner, M.D., Mayo Clinics chief medical information officer, in a written statement.
The integrated EHR/RCM system will be built in 2015 and 2016, with implementation planned to begin in 2017 and will be a foundation for Mayo Clinic operations over the next several decades, according to the announcement. Ultimately, more than 45,000 Mayo staff will be trained to use the new EHR and RCM system.
A project team that will include staff from Mayo Clinic, Epic and external consulting organizations is expected to be in place by April 2015, said Cris Ross, chief information officer at Mayo.
