Care Connect for Community Physicians

As part of our continuing efforts to build an integrated health system, we are implementing Care Connect, an Epic Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system, across the entire organization.

In partnership with GRIPA, we are pleased to be among the many top health systems in the country to extend this best-in-class EMR and Practice Management offering to you, our credentialed, community physician practices.

Our Care Connect Community Physician Program provides you with much more than just a standard EMR. With Care Connect, you benefit from full training and ongoing technical support, GRIPA assistance to achieve Meaningful Use, and automatic upgrades to ICD-10 and future versions – to name just a few key benefits.

Whether you are looking to transition from a paper-based patient record system to an EMR, or it’s time to upgrade your existing EMR, Care Connect may be the perfect fit for you and your practice.

About Epic

Epic is widely recognized as the leader in the healthcare IT industry and its EMR is considered the most advanced, fully integrated electronic medical record on the market today. Epic’s graphical user interface connects functional “worlds” facilitating streamlined workflows and allowing users to jump easily between applications without signing in and out of multiple programs. Approximately one out of every four physicians in the US will use the Epic EMR when current rollouts are complete. This means well over 110 million real-time, electronic patient records will be immediately accessible across the US through the Epic Care Everywhere network. In Monroe County, nearly 80% of patients will eventually be a part of this network. 

Approximately one out of every four physicians in the U.S. will use the Epic EMR when current rollouts are complete.

Epic has been recognized with over 20 awards from KLAS, an objective, third-party evaluating agency considered the “consumer reports of healthcare IT.” For the past 10 years, the Epic Ambulatory EMR has been ranked #1 by KLAS. Multiple Epic clients have won the HIMSS Davies Award for their use of Epic applications to help improve patient safety, increase efficiency and provide cost-effective healthcare.

Key Epic clients include:

  • Cleveland Clinic
  • Guthrie Healthcare System
  • Geisinger Health System
  • Johns Hopkins Medicine 
  • University of Rochester Medical Center
