Epic goes live

1 April 2019

UCLH’s new electronic health record system, known as Epic, went live on 31 March 2019.

The system, designed to improve patient safety and experience and giving healthcare professionals access to all relevant patient information at UCLH in one place, affects how research is done at UCLH.

Like all clinical processes, research procedures, tests and scans will be managed via Epic.

Researchers will update Epic to reflect a patient’s research activity, and research studies at UCLH will be visible within Epic to all users.

The UCLH/UCL Joint Research Office (JRO) has put together advice and guides for researchers on what Epic means for research.

Visit the Epic pages of the JRO website to view this advice and these guides.
