Achieving a Single Enterprise System at Johns Hopkins

The implementation of Epic at Johns Hopkins and the establishment of a true enterprise system has taken several years. By July 2016, we will have  a single, unified electronic medical record across our ambulatory and inpatient care settings, with the exception of Johns Hopkins Medicine All Children's Hospital. The rollout is scheduled as follows:

Johns Hopkins Medicine Academic Build - Phase IIb

Johns Hopkins Medicine is growing closer to meeting the institutional goal of “one patient, one record” with the final phase of the Epic rollout completed in the inpatient units and ancillary applications at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. The Johns Hopkins Hospital inpatient applications and the Kennedy Krieger Institute are scheduled to go live in Epic in July 2016.

MyChart activation rate graph


MyChart is the name of the patient portal offered as part of the Epic 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 2013, MyChart has offered significant benefits to both the patient and the care team.

As of April 18, 2016, 300,000 Johns Hopkins Medicine patients have activated MyChart.
