Epic’s Gold Stars Program placed Health Choice Network in the top decile of the country for its efforts to implement Epic-recommended EHR optimization and improve EHR usability.
Only a few months after Health Choice Network’s (HCN) Epic EHR implementation, the nationwide collaboration of health centers achieved a level 9 in Epic’s Gold Star Program for its effective EHR usability.
“We are only getting started,” Oscar Perez, chief applications and innovation officer of HCN, said in a public statement.
“Achieving the highest Epic Gold Stars rating was an established goal set by leadership at HCN at the onset of our community health center unique build in 2021.
This recognition does not come easy or without a price. Many organizations work across multiple years just to achieve a lesser Epic Star rating.”
The Epic Gold Stars Program provides a scorecard rating of how efficiently an organization uses the Epic EHR and provides a roadmap to help organizations enhance clinical and financial outcomes.
