Duke University Health System has rolled out its EHR platform from Epic Systems to consolidate health data from Duke University Hospital and 223 DUHS outpatient facilities. The system's installation is expected to help the group save time and money by cutting duplicative tests. "It will also give patients complete access to their own health records through an online portal that also allows patients greater ability to proactively engage in their care," said Duke Medicine CIO Dr. Jeffrey Ferranti.
