Epic Rolls into Its Final Phase

Date: January 7, 2015

As Johns Hopkins Medicine continues its pursuit of the “one patient, one record” goal, the final phase of the Epic system rollout—the academic build—is underway. After a series of September 2014 site visits to observe the Epic enterprise system in action, the project team has performed an extensive evaluation of work flow design. Here’s what’s next for Epic.

Jan. 6–8, 2015: Re-engineering sessions are scheduled for specialized work flows that need major changes and to make final decisions about work flow harmonization. Subject matter experts attend sessions related to their areas of expertise.

Jan. 12–June 12, 2015:  Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and Johns Hopkins Hospital work flows will be built and tested.

Jan. 12–Sept. 18, 2015: Specialty-specific documentation, procedures, tests and order sets content will be built.

April 12, 2015: Epic 2014 goes live. In sites where Epic is already in use—ambulatory and inpatient hospital locations—this is the date to upgrade from the 2012 version to the 2014 version.

Dec. 1, 2015: Epic goes live at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. In addition to the existing modules for Epic, the Epic oncology module and the professional billing module replacing the existing system used for physician/provider billing will become active.

March 1, 2016: Epic goes live for Johns Hopkins Home Care Group and for the Epic module used for the clinical work flows and detailed regulatory requirements of solid organ transplants.

July 1, 2016: Epic goes live at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Kennedy Krieger Institute.
