Epic at Johns Hopkins

Johns Hopkins Medicine’s new integrated electronic medical record system (EMR) has rolled out across most of Johns Hopkins Medicine, including:

  • Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center
  • Howard County General Hospital
  • Sibley Memorial Hospital
  • Suburban Hospital
  • Johns Hopkins Community Physicians 
  • Johns Hopkins Hospital ambulatory clinics
  • Johns Hopkins Hospital Pediatric Emergency and Adult Emergency Departments
  • Johns Hopkins Home Care Group
  • Potomac Home Health Care 
  • Phoenix Transplant application for solid organ transplant or listed patients  

When Epic rolls out across inpatient applications at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Kennedy Krieger Institute this July, Johns Hopkins Medicine will have one unified patient record system for the entire enterprise, with the exception of Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital. Epic incorporates scheduling and registration, clinical documentation, computerized provider order entry (CPOE), ePrescribing, and Charge Capture. It also improves the critical connection to affiliate and referring physicians across Johns Hopkins Medicine.

Epic at Johns Hopkins Medicine: One Patient, One Record

July 1 marks a tremendous milestone for Johns Hopkins Medicine with the last and largest Epic go-live at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. After several years of intense planning, training and preparation, Johns Hopkins Medicine has taken the final step toward the creation of “one patient, one record”—a single, integrated health care delivery system at all Johns Hopkins Medicine locations in Maryland and the greater Washington, D.C., region.
