Why Epic?

Ardent Health Services unites all of its hospitals and clinics on the Epic electronic health record. This single information-sharing platform helps us deliver more consistent, higher-quality care at every touch point while streamlining workflow for caregivers.

Epic isn’t just another electronic health record, however. It’s the industry’s most highly regarded platform – and the choice of many of the nation’s leading health systems – for one reason: it works. Intuitive and easy to use, Epic is built on processes proven to elevate quality of care, increase efficiency and, most importantly, allow caregivers to spend more time at the bedside. Hospitals around the country have reported dramatic gains in both clinical and financial measures following implementation.

Ardent chose Epic after one of the most thorough evaluation periods in the software company’s history. Nearly 500 team members, including physicians, bedside nurses, registration and discharge staff representing each part of the care continuum and all specialties participated in the demonstrations and assessment.
