This is going to be EPIC

May 4, 2018 | Treasure Ransom | @transom

For those that aren't aware, something EPIC is happening in Rochester this weekend.

Our Wisconsin colleagues and health system sites in Minnesota have paved the way for our converged medical record implementation of a system called Epic. Things have gone well at those locations and it is the hope that when Rochester goes live tomorrow (May 5, 2018), all will be well.

This is an important time for all employees impacted to work together. Where do you fit in this scenario:

  • Wisconsin and Minnesota health system sites - no sweat, your regions are well under way with Epic
  • Rochester - your colleagues may be under a bit of pressure, especially in clinical areas, as their work life has drastically changed
  • Arizona and Florida - your time will come in November, so enjoy the calm before the storm

As a new employee, you are learning a lot of new things. It may be helpful to realize your colleagues that are mentoring you in your new job may also be dealing with a huge learning curve due to Epic. This is an exciting change for the organization. Your patience and understanding will be critical.
