20 Sep Down the rabbit hole at Epic: 9 key points from the Users Group Meeting
Close to 18,000 people gathered at Epic Systems’ headquarters in Verona, Wis., this week for the vendor’s annual Users Group Meeting. Hospital and health system leaders shared their experiences with Epic’s platform, and Epic leaders discussed new developments and offerings in its software suite. This idea of collaborating to build on successes, and doing so with a humanitarian mindset, was the underlying theme of Tuesday morning’s executive address, delivered by Epic founder and CEO Judy Faulkner.
Dressed like the Mad Hatter in brown boots, a coat jacket with coattails and a top hat, to fit with UGM’s “Adventures in Wonderland” theme, Ms. Faulkner outlined milestones for Epic and Epic customers present. She also shared plans for the future, all while underscoring the importance of working together.
“We’re not going to be the best at everything, and that’s why…collaboration amongst health systems is so important,” Ms. Faulkner says.
