IT Leaders From LCMC Selected to Offer Operational Excellence Presentation at National Conference

New Orleans, LA –  At this year’s Epic User Group Meeting, Tanya Townsend, SVP and CIO, and David Singer, AVP Epic Core Applications, were selected as one of three health systems to present in the Executive Operational Excellence Track on the topic of LCMC Health’s Organizational Transformation with Epic. Their presentation took place on Epic’s campus in Verona, Wisconsin in front of top healthcare executives from across the nation.

The presentation highlighted successful strategies implemented during LCMC Health’s Epic Go-Live journey including governance structure, operational readiness and informatics. Based on these strategies, LCMC Health achieved great results that were shared with attendees related to patient safety, improved productivity, and reductions in complexity with improved care coordination across our enterprise.

“Being selected to present in this executive track at the User Group Meeting is a true testament to the hard work and collaboration at LCMC Health and our hospitals during the implementation of Epic,” said Townsend. “With the upcoming launch at West Jefferson Medical Center in early October, our health system will have successfully transformed our five independent hospitals’ platforms into one, creating an effective system that is providing us the opportunity and ability to enhance the health of the communities we serve.”

LCMC Health was selected to present at the annual Epic User Group Meeting from hundreds of submissions by Epic customers. Peer reviewers along with a team at Epic reviewed hundreds of submissions, and proposals were approved based on topic, measurable outcomes presented, completeness of the submission, as well as speaker credentials. Other healthcare systems asked to present in the Executive Tracks include large healthcare systems such as Kaiser Permanente, Sutter Health and NYU Langone Health.
