Epic Go-live Update for Piedmont Columbus Regional
Things to remember and key dates:

  • Hospital (Inpatient)
  • Epic Inpatient Training: Now – June 21
  • Personalization Labs: Now – June 28
  • Go-Live: July 1

Providers and staff are encouraged to utilize the Epic playground on the desktop of your clinic desktop computer. Experience shows that employees who have accessed and “played” on the Epic playground learn faster, have quicker success and feel less stress when go-live comes. There is nothing that can be broken or compromised on the playground.

The next couple of months will be very exciting for Piedmont Columbus Regional. Our employees and physician partners will see some changes based on all of the work various teams have completed. Communication is a key component of success for managing change so please stay connected to the process and let us know when you need assistance.

Congratulations to Penny Allen, a nurse at our Midtown Campus for being named one of the AJC's Nursing Excellence Award winners for 2019!

Visit the Piedmont Columbus Regional Facebook page to watch a video about Penny's story.
