Mayo Clinic Partners with Epic, Replaces Cerner
The Kansas City Star reports that the Mayo Clinic Health System confirms its new electronic health records will partner with Epic, instead of long-time partner Cerner.
The new information technology system will replace three systems used in Mayo hospitals that have been provided by Cerner and GE.
The new contract value was not disclosed, but stock analysts said it is worth hundreds of millions of dollars over several years.
Mayo officials said a project team will begin working on the conversion in April and the new system will be built in 2015 and 2016, with implementation scheduled for 2017.
