Epic – our new Electronic Health Record
Epic is the name of our electronic patient record system, which we launched jointly with Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust in October 2023.
Epic has replaced a number of historic IT systems, as well as paper records, that were previously in use at the Trust.
The system allows everyone involved in a patient’s care to have access to their records, whether in hospital, in a community clinic, or at home. It gives our staff a complete overview of a patients’ care, allowing them to work more efficiently and have more time to spend with patients.
Our app for patients, MyChart, is linked to the Epic system so patients can securely and easily access their patient records, giving them more control over their care.
Epic and MyChart are used in some of the best hospitals around the world, as well as in the UK. It has been implemented in Cambridge University Hospitals, University College London Hospitals, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children and Royal Devon and Exeter.
