EpicLeap Go Live updateNov. 2, 2017, 9:46 AM
After two years of planning and preparation through EpicLeap, thousands of individuals from across all areas of Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) came together overnight to “Go Live” and launch eStar, the new computer system that will support the health system’s electronic health records, workflows for inpatient and outpatient care delivery, test ordering, billing and other hospital and clinic operations. Along the way, EpicLeap has already involved 18,000 employees who work in the Medical Center’s health system.
“I could not be more proud of how we came together. Key individuals from across the organization did whatever was asked to keep the activation process on track,” said Neal Patel, M.D., Chief Health Information Officer. “There are so many individuals who have worked tirelessly to make this happen.”
The new eStar platform will also engage and benefit VUMC’s patients through increased functionality of My Health at Vanderbilt, a single bill for services and more robust online appointment scheduling.
