Premier Health this fall will upgrade to the version of Epic that was released in May 2023.  The upgrade will go live on Saturday, October 7.  Originally, Epic offered upgrades every one to two years but recently moved to having upgrades three to four times a year. Expect that we will typically be installing new versions around twice a year. This provides us with smaller and more easily implemented updates. It is very important that we stay up-to-date with Epic’s software so that we can meet the regulatory requirements and bring you the requested new functionality. Over the next year or two, look for many usability updates that will make Epic more efficient for you to use. We recognize even positive updates can be challenging during the transition. We want to express appreciation for your patience and assistance in working through these changes. More specifics will be forthcoming.
