Rapid City, S.D. (June 24, 2020) – Monument Health joins a small group of organizations to be recognized by Epic, a national health care software program, for using best practices in electronic medical records. The Epic Honor Roll Good Maintenance Grant program also includes a financial grant which Monument Health will invest into its Epic services.
“Participation in the program shows our commitment to best practice, draws the most value from our investment in our Epic software, and helps improve the health and wellness of the communities we serve,” said Stephanie Lahr, M.D., Chief Medical Information Officer and Chief Information Officer for Monument Health.
Organizations honored through Epic’s Honor Roll Good Maintenance Grant Program meet specific requirements related to efficiency, fast system response times, preparedness for downtimes, implementing key Epic components and reaching benchmarks in population health.
Monument Health earned the Cum Laude distinction.
