We Support The Following Epic Modules

The Epic Data Warehousing modules are: Bridges, Caboodle/Cogito, Cache, Chronicles, Clarity, and Data Courier. As the concept of a “warehouse” suggests, this is a central location for huge amounts of data, consolidated from numerous sources.

They allow healthcare IT teams like yours to perform and strategically analyze queries that return large amounts of data from transaction applications, log files, and much more. The functions performed by these modules provide healthcare organizations with valuable insights to guide and enhance decision-making processes and expand capabilities.

Here is more about each of these Epic modules.

Epic Bridges

As the name implies, Epic Bridges serves as an interfacing bridge between Epic and other systems. This module allows healthcare facilities to install and configure the required interfaces to create and maintain connections with other systems to exchange healthcare data; monitor messaging; support data transfers; and more. This includes but isn’t limited to the standard HL7 interfaces.

Robust features include database mirroring to allow your facilities to benefit from 1:1 data parity and disaster recovery with relatively low investment; divergent datasets in a unified multi-model architecture; security auditing, comprehensive encryption abilities, and smart authentication.

Epic Caché makes it easy for healthcare IT teams to manage this database, one that supports distributed systems for agile scalability. Plus, thanks to embedded operational analytics tools, you can seamlessly receive real-time insights about your key performance indicators and more.

Epic Chronicles

Epic Chronicles is a comprehensive database management system that undergirds the entire Epic system, one specifically designed for healthcare organizations. Each application within Chronicles leverages the unified data model to properly import, structure, manage, and export data. The result: highly effective searches, report creation, statistics analysis, computations, and much more.

Epic Data Courier

Epic Data Courier—or “DC” for short—focuses on database records and defining items within them, delineating the capacity of IT teams to edit within a particular technological environment.
