  1. So someone came to their senses to question if spending 500% more on Epic is really worth it?! I hope this starts a trend. Esp for health systems that are using tax payer dollars. If youre private and want to go piss your money away go for it.

    What until taxes and interest rates go up (both are going up–that’s a fact)–a lot of these hospitals are going to go belly up and they can cite their biggest expenditure, Eic, as one of the primary reasons.

    Hahah wasn’t the CEO at UMass bragging about how expensive Epic is?? Idiot.
