Featured Success Story Mercy Helps Tahoe Hospital Launch its Epic EHR
On November 1, Tahoe Forest Health System (TFHS), working in partnership with Mercy Technology Services, launched its new Epic electronic health record - marking a major milestone for the two-hospital, multi-state health system.
With tools to manage pregnancies from labor though the outpatient experience, Epic’s Stork module is a powerful addition to Mercy’s Epic EHR.
Health care is challenged with a nursing shortage and high nurse turnover. With advanced data analytics helping Mercy nursing leaders make better use of available staff and avoid costly overtime incentives and agency labor, Mercy saved $4.3 million in nursing labor costs, decreased nurse turnover and increased nurse satisfaction.
Mercy was named a 2016 HIMSS Enterprise Davies Award recipient for achieving improvements in patient care through the use of health information technology.
