Mayo Clinic has started the process of moving to a single, integrated electronic health record and billing system with the implementation of Epic at its Mayo Clinic Health System sites in Wisconsin. Wisconsin sites began implementing Epic last weekend. Mayo Clinic Health System sites in Minnesota are scheduled to go live in November 2017, followed by Mayo Clinic’s Rochester campus in May 2018 and Mayo Clinic’s Arizona and Florida campuses in October 2018. Once Epic is in place across Mayo, patients and providers will have the information they need from one system. This includes medications, allergies and health issues. All future billing will be done through one system, meaning patients will receive one consolidated statement, no matter where at Mayo they are seen.
