Epic For Community Practice Providers

Last Updated: 4/28/21 

About EpicEdge Community 

With the move to Epic, Wellforce has the opportunity to extend the ambulatory module into the community and allow independent providers to implement the Epic EHR product at an affordable cost. This extension of Epic in the community can offer your practice the full benefits of Epic's proven EHR:

  • True Coordination of Care - Follow your patient's progress across the entire Wellforce continuum as well as from many health care systems in our geographic area and across the United States.
  • Improved Efficiency - Access and review patient data for your patients who have been seen by other physicians using Wellforce EpicEdge Community without the need to re-enter information.
  • Increased Patient Satisfaction - Empower your patients with a patient portal that allows them to request refills, view lab results, schedule appointments and complete questionnaires for patient reported data.
  • Financial Privacy - Keep your financial information separate and accessible only to authorized users at your practice.
