Every Patient Incredible Care

An Epic Journey Toward a Fully Integrated Electronic Health Record

Meritus Health is committed to being on the forefront of health care technology with one goal in mind: providing the highest quality, safest patient care. Because of that commitment, we are implementing a new electronic health record (EHR) – Epic. We believe this new EHR will take us to the next level of care in the community we are privileged to serve.

When we go live with our new EHR system on September 1, 2018, our care delivery will be transformed and streamlined, allowing our healthcare providers to better manage your care with:

  • one patient, one record
  • one scheduling system
  • 24/7 availability to patient records
  • a single source of data for quality improvement and research.

Our EHR will provide you with an opportunity to play a more active, engaged role in your care – a proven factor in better outcomes:

  • Access to your health information through a secure, online portal
  • Records are linked together so that the people providing your care can quickly access your records when you need services at any Meritus Health site.

Why are we implementing Epic?

Epic will transform the way we deliver care

The implementation of the Epic electronic health record will transform the way care is delivered by integrating systems across Meritus Health and the community, streamlining processes, and increasing efficiency. Our new electronic health record (EHR) will guide Meritus Health into a new era in health care and take the health system to a new level of excellence in:

  • Patient Care
  • Education
  • Research
  • Innovation

Epic will enhance our patients' experiences of care across the health system

  • Enhance patient safety and quality of care
  • Improve the patient experience
  • Standardize and streamline clinical processes
  • Actively engage patients in their own care
  • Develop a population health culture and enable coordination both internal and external to Meritus
