Olmsted Medical Center switches to EPIC system

This allows OMC to go from three systems to one.

ROCHESTER, Minn. – Months after the Mayo Clinic made the switch, employees at Olmsted Medical Center are also getting used to a new electronic health record system.

The new program is called EPIC. EPIC staff will be on site for the next two weeks to help workers learn about the new system.

“They all come together for the first time,” Dr. Randy Hemann, OMC Chief Clinical Care Officer, said, “so communication and just accuracy and safety really improves with this system.”

Hemann said EPIC is typically made for large clinics. When they were given the option, OMC decided to make the switch.

“We are the first health care system on this implementation model for EPIC, one that fits our size and scope,” Hemann said. “So that's been very exciting and EPIC's been learning from us and we've been learning from them.”

OMC has over 350,000 different medical records, with more than 80,000 active charts.
