Lehigh Valley Health Network and St. Luke’s Health System Choose Epic EHR
The Morning Call reports both Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) and St. Luke’s University Health Network’s will install and utilize Epic’s electronic health records system.
Each health system is reported to have come to their decisions independently.

At St. Luke’s, the Epic transition will start with the network’s hospitals early next year and be extended to outpatient locations at a later date.
Lehigh Valley Health Network is a 1,084 bed health system with headquarters in Allentown, PA.
