Epic Go Live Planning and Preparation
Going live with the Epic application is the target throughout the implementation, integration, and optimization process with the goal of leveraging this technology to provide world-class health care. Steps of the overall Epic implementation process include setting objectives and timelines, budgets and scope—and then analyzing workflows and processes to ensure that configurations and customizations will dovetail with them.
Role-based training sessions, process documentation, change management initiatives and more are involved in the implementation process—before testing, validating and, finally, Epic go live day takes place.
It’s important to have knowledgeable, seasoned Epic consultants in place for the cut-over process to maximize the financial benefits.Less time-tested consultants may unnecessarily complicate the process because they don’t have the needed experience to fall back on. This can lead to missed deadlines, extra expenses, and plenty of frustration.
Experienced professionals from the HealthTECH network will gather input from key people in diverse roles to minimize any issues and avoid potential pitfalls. They will double check the cleanliness and accessibility of data, design and test the Epic setup, and systematically mark off punch list items as they are optimally completed.
Finally, they ensure that end users are trained in their specific roles, appropriate support systems are ready to go, and all is properly configured. Then, Epic go live professionals manage an effective transition to the application.

Epic Go Live FAQs
When your healthcare facility chooses Epic as your EHR application, this highly flexible application is typically configured and customized to dovetail with your specific workflows and processes. To ensure each member of your staff is utilizing the application effectively, it would be ideal to have professionals with expertise in your specific setups to offer ongoing end user support after the application goes live.
Many facilities designate certain members of their in-house IT staff as “super users” and they receive special training in Epic usage and can also serve as points of contact when additional support is needed, in-house. HealthTECH can then provide your organization with these professionals who can offer this ongoing support, as needed, with the Epic application.
The actual go live transitions are not lengthy as they consist of switching from one application to another after all of the components to go live are in place. The entire process, from selecting the Epic software to going live can take several months and, in complex situations or when the application is implemented in stages, it can take a couple of years. In certain circumstances, it can make sense to transition all at once, meaning every healthcare department and all users. Other times, it’s more logical to go live in strategic phases.
HealthTECH Resources can provide your healthcare facility with consultants who can guide you through the decision making process, crafting an approach that fits your timeline, budget, and care environment. One key benefit of the all-in approach is that your facility may need a shorter amount of significant support services; a key benefit of a phased-in approach is that users can receive more personalized support along the way.
First, the overall Epic project should include inputs and feedback from people throughout the organization to ensure that all workflows and processes are efficiently and cost effectively addressed. As part of this, it’s important to incorporate the cutover into an overall implementation plan, carefully planning the transition and strategically checking off all punch list items before going live. This includes successful migration of clean, de-duped data; effectively completed, role-based end user training; comprehensive testing and validation; and more. Plus, any support services must be ready to go before the application goes live.
