Data and Analytics
Epic provides healthcare organizations with a pool of data from multiple entry points. Without help from a qualified consultant however, this data may go under-utilized, missing opportunities to improve workflow efficiency and boost revenue.
QIC helps capture and understand data that is meaningful to your company through the Epic software with reports and dashboards.
Why is Epic Gaining Momentum?
Epic provides in-depth software solutions for specialized clinics, hospitals, and multi-hospital organizations. The goal is to organize patient health information and streamline workflow to ensure clinicians have access to all data that could affect diagnosis or treatment plans.
The software is gaining momentum through its ability to reduce demand management for IT professionals and makes it easier for hospitals to comply with healthcare regulations and laws.
Revenue Cycle Transformation
Epic provides a wide view of hospital accounting, allowing you to manage revenue cycles and identify areas of improvement. Workflow inefficiencies can be identified that further improve the patient experience by analyzing denials management, accounts receivable, consolidation revenue and more.
Two critical parts of optimizing a facility or department for revenue growth is efficiently onboarding patients and streamlining patient engagement. Epic provides these benefits by providing clinicians with the EMR data needed in a fraction of the time, streamlining pre-patient processes, and allowing staff to spend more time in direct contact with the patient.

Is Epic Better Than Cerner?
Both Epic and Cerner offer cloud-based software solutions, however, many large healthcare organizations choose Epic to provide the most versatile EHR solutions for their hospital management needs.
Many clinicians state that Cerner suits their needs in ambulatory services or for smaller clinics, as they cater to smaller practices. However, larger healthcare organizations and hospitals state that Epic provides a cleaner user interface (UI) and more straightforward workflows and tools, making the choice to switch to Epic a no-brainer.
At QIC, we provide consulting services for both EHR solutions, ensuring your practice can continue thriving at peak efficiency no matter which solution is best for your environment.
