AdventHealth, a Florida-based health system and one of the nation’s largest faith-based health systems, has announced it will transition away from Cerner and will implement Epic Systems EHR across its 50 hospital campuses and 1,200-plus care sites that ranges over nine states.The health system did not comment whether the full Epic transition was due to its issues with the Cerner revenue cycle management platform, although the tool does have a history of underperforming for health systems.The Epic implementation will allow the health system to be on a single, integrated platform. This platform will include its EHR and a revenue cycle management system that covers its acute care, physician practice, ambulatory, urgent care, home health, and hospice facilities. The transition to Epic will begin in March and it is expected to be completed in roughly three years, explained the health system.
