What's driving health systems to switch to Epic?

May 14, 2024
Becker's Hospital Review
Summary
Health systems are increasingly transitioning from Oracle Health EHR systems to Epic, primarily due to the superior integration and information exchange capabilities offered by Epic. This shift has been observed notably after Oracle acquired Cerner in June 2022, which led to customer concerns and accelerated the departure of major clients like Northwell Health and Boston Children's. These health systems cite Epic's enhanced tool integration and better facilitation of information exchange with other local hospitals as key reasons for their switch, despite the considerable challenge and typical 15-year usage period associated with changing EHR vendors.
