Global providers give Epic’s inpatient EMR high marks

With provider interest in Epic’s EpicCare Inpatient EMR system increasing internationally, KLAS surveyed Epic’s live customers as well as those implementing outside the U.S. to measure performance, budget accuracy and adoption by clinicians. In a new report entitled “Epic’s Global Performance: An Early Look at Customers Outside the U.S.,” KLAS found that providers are pleased with Epic’s commitment to success and the outcomes they have achieved.  

KLAS compared Epic’s high performance with international providers against early adopters (2003–2004) in the U.S. and found that the results were consistent with both groups. KLAS also found that although Epic comes in at a higher price than other EMR vendors, the implementation costs were accurate, and there were no unexpected expenses.

“As we talked to providers outside the U.S., we found that they are pleased with Epic, but there are some challenges that come with global implementation,” said Jeremy Goff, research director.  “Some providers note challenges with cultural differences and Epic’s understanding of the local healthcare landscape, but they all agree that their success far outweighs any challenges.”
