Epic executive wows tech industry leaders

A top official of Epic Systems Corp. dazzled his tech industry colleagues on Tuesday with figures of the Verona company's rapid growth.

Epic, which develops and installs electronic health record systems, started in the basement of a building on old University Avenue in 1979. Now, the company owns 811 acres in Verona, Stephen Dickmann, chief administrative officer, told about 160 people at the Wisconsin Innovation Network luncheon meeting at the Sheraton Hotel.

Epic had 73 customers in 2000. By 2011, it was up to 260. Another 30 "large customers" are expected to be added in 2012, Dickmann said. The company has 5,225 employees and will likely add 1,000 this year. Between 33 percent and 44 percent of the U.S. population is served by hospitals and clinics using Epic's software systems, which track about 100,000 data elements involved in health care.
