In all, Epic came out with the most wins, securing eight Best in KLAS awards and ranking as the number-one Overall Software Vendor, number-one Overall Software Suite Vendor, and number-One Overall Physician Practice Vendor.

A better level of care.

Patients will have one Piedmont medical chart which means that no matter where you are at Piedmont – whether in the hospital or in your physician’s office – your medical care team will have real-time access to your medical information and can share test results, charts, reports, and other important information without waiting for it to be forwarded to them.

A better patient experience.

Epic will reduce the number of forms our patients have to complete when they visit a Piedmont hospital or physician because their medical history and registration information is already available.Our patients will have one Piedmont bill and one customer service number to call for questions or issues related to that bill.

A better level of access.

Through Epic’s secure patient web portal, MyChart, Piedmont patients can contact their physician with medical questions, refill requests, appointment requests and lab results. Patients can review their medical history including medications, immunizations and allergies. They can even review information related to other family members whose care they help manage. All of this is available from their computer or through a free app on iPhones, iPads and Android devices.With MyChart’s “Lucy” feature, patients can download their medical information into a single secure document that they can share with new healthcare providers.
