Achieving a single enterprise system at Johns Hopkins
The implementation of Epic at Johns Hopkins and the establishment of a true enterprise system will take several years. We anticipate achievement of a single, unified EMR across our ambulatory and inpatient care settings by 2015. The rollout is scheduled as follows:
Epic inpatient and ancillary applications will be implemented at Suburban Hospital in July 2014.
The Department of Emergency Medicine and Pediatric Emergency Medicine will be the first two inpatient clinical departments at The Johns Hopkins Hospital to go-live with Epic on August 1, 2014.
Johns Hopkins Hospital ambulatory practices converted to Epic in June 2013. Outpatient pediatric practices migrated to Epic on August 15, 2013.
Johns Hopkins Medicine has made a strategic commitment to the deployment of a fully integrated suite of Epic solutions, across the enterprise. Although a precise schedule is not yet finalized, we look forward to the deployment of Epic at The Johns Hopkins Hospital for inpatient applications over the next few years.
Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center went live with ambulatory as part of the first rollout phase. Although a precise schedule is not yet finalized, Epic will be implemented for inpatient applications at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center over the next few years.

MyChart is the name of the patient portal offered as part of the EpicCare system. MyChart provides patients with access into part of their medical record, as well as a secure conduit within which to communicate to the care team. Since Epic began rolling out in April, MyChart has already begun to offer significant benefits to both the patient and the care team.
As of March 14, 2014, 95,537 Johns Hopkins Medicine patients have activated MyChart.
