An Epic journey for physicians

An Epic journey for physicians

This webpage serves as a resource for Scripps physicians as we work together to implement the Epic electronic health record (EHR) and revenue cycle system in support of improved patient care, clinical outcomes and efficiency. This new single, integrated system will replace our ambulatory and inpatient EHR and revenue cycle management systems.
