It’s been a long journey for JHAH on the road to implementing a truly first-rate Electronic Health Record (EHR) that is capable of supporting its transformational ambitions in being an ever brighter example for quality of patient care in the kingdom. The recently launched patient portal, MyChart, which elevates patient partnership in their own healthcare to a new level, is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the anticipated benefits of the new Epic system. Over the years there have been many talented and motivated people that helped sustain the momentum for this EHR implementation from its conception to execution, and I feel quite fortunate to be playing my part in this story at this very exciting chapter. I am always inspired by the earnest dedication to excellence demonstrated by JHAH staff and leadership, and am glad to know they will be supported by an incredibly versatile and talented Epic@JHAH team and an IT organization that grows stronger and more capable day by day.
