The transition to Epic will happen in phases. As of April 4, 2013, clinics at, or associated with, the following Johns Hopkins locations have moved or will move to EpicCare Ambulatory:
April 4, 2013
- All Johns Hopkins Community Physicians (JHCP) practices

- All SOM ambulatory clinics in Howard County: the Medical Pavilion at Howard County General Hospital, the Charter Drive Professional Building, and Knoll North Drive
August 15, 2013 - JHH for Pediatrics, Good Samaritan clinics, Upper Chesapeake and all other remote locations
EpicCare Ambulatory incorporates systems and features that provide a complete ambulatory patient record and features related to clinical analytics and clinical research. In addition, Epic will be used for registration and scheduling at all the above locations with the exception of Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, which will continue to use Meditech Registration and Scheduling.
In June 2013, Sibley Memorial Hospital and Howard County General Hospital will convert to Epic for all inpatient and ambulatory functions. Within the next four years, ambulatory clinics, treatment environments and inpatient functions at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center will convert to Epic, followed by inpatient functions at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, and inpatient and ambulatory at Suburban Hospital.
Certain specialty and niche systems will not be replaced, including systems that interface with Epic, some specialty systems, and ambulatory areas that care for both inpatients and outpatients. Wilmer Eye Institute, for instance, will implement Kaleidoscope the Epic application specific to ophthalmology, which facilitates the collection of specialty-specific history and examination data, at all of its outpatient clinics.
