University of California San Diego (UCSD) Health has transitioned its EHR [electronic health records] system to the cloud, while its sister hospital is preparing for a similar move by the end of the year.
The transition is part of a broader IT strategy at all five University of California-affiliated hospitals that prioritizes cloud computing and shared data centers. UC Irvine Health, which is in the midst of transitioning from Allscripts to Epic, is scheduled to add its new EHRs to the cloud in November, allowing the two systems to easily share medical records.
UCSD is the first academic medical center to host its EHRs on Epic’s cloud infrastructure, the health system announced on Monday.
