Akron Children's Hospital began implementing Epic, an electronic health record (EHR) system, in 2009. When completely installed in 2014, Epic will integrate all inpatient and outpatient clinical records with appointments, registration, billing and other patient-related business functions throughout our healthcare system.
All inpatient systems are already operating on the Epic platform, so access to inpatient health information is only available through our Epic EHR.
Epic added functionality to automatically notify primary care providers when the patients are admitted and/or discharged from Akron Children's.
Notices will be sent:
If you have questions or concerns about our Epic implementation, contact DOCIT, our helpline for providers, at 330-543-6248.
We rely on your generosity to provide quality medical care to every child who needs us.
