First in Saudi - JHAH launches Epic

Placing JHAH at the forefront of health care information technology, JHAH is the first hospital in the Kingdom to launch what is widely regarded as the global leader in electronic health records (EHRs). Epic connects all caregivers to a single record for each patient so that an informed decision, based on the most upto- date information, can be made on the care of the patient. It organizes patient information, provides suggested actions and guides for caregivers, and coordinates care across multiple specialty settings.

Epic has a proven track record. It is secure, confidential, and reliable. Today Epic is used by more than 250 health care organizations worldwide including Johns Hopkins Medicine and many other leading health care institutions. Moving to Epic’s integrated EHR is a smart choice for both our hospital and our patients. JHAH continues to lead the way by being the first hospital system in Kingdom to implement Epic.

Increased complexity calls for state-of-the-art EHR

Internally, our healthcare delivery system has become more complex. As a result, stronger efforts are needed to ensure that both patients and care teams have greater access to more complete information. Epic will incorporate scheduling and registration, clinical documentation, computerized provider order entry, ePrescribing, charge capture, and improve the critical connection to affiliate and referring physicians across JHAH. It can also be easily used on mobile and other handheld devices, allowing more flexibility for care providers.

Externally, communicating and collaborating with our outpatient clinics is paramount to ensuring the best possible care. By giving providers a complete, secure, online, real-time view of a patient's record, the entire care team can make better and more coordinated decisions that ultimately lead to the best ultimate outcomes.

MyChart - Patient access to online medical record

Epic’s patient portal, MyChart,  enables patients and authorized family members to securely view such personal information as test results, medication records and immunization records. By making health information available to patients online, we invest more time taking care of more complicated questions and seeing patients. This patient portal helps us treat patients as partners in their own care.
