EHR Case Study: WellSpan Health Epic Conversion and Data Abstraction
During WellSpan Health’s Epic EHR conversion, the Intellis team consolidated five legacy EHRs, overcame significant interface match challenges, achieved over 99 percent accuracy, and delivered all key clinical data on day one. View the case study.
WellSpan Health is an integrated health care system headquartered in York, Pennsylvania. WellSpan works to ensure that inpatient, out-patient, home health, and physician services are accessible throughout the region. The health system includes:
- Providing care at six area hospitals
- Offering services at more than 130 outpatient locations
- Operating a regional home care organization
WellSpan launched “Project One,” to consolidate its five legacy EHRs and convert the entire system to the Epic EHR platform. At an estimated cost of $188.7 million over three years, the goal was to create uniformity, better connect providers with patients, and improve care coordination. WellSpan chose Intellis as a partner to support “Project One” by reducing costs, increasing accuracy, improving productivity, ensuring timely project completion, and successfully converting over 250,000 patient records to the Epic EHR platform.

The health system expected delays, but they didn’t happen due to a ton of preparation work on the part the system’s workforce. WellSpan’s announcement of successful Epic EHR conversion go live: WellSpan Epic EHR goes live without a hitch | Healthcare IT News
“We recognized that we couldn’t function as one complete system, if we had multiple records and systems in place, We called it ‘Project One,’ not for its prioritization, but as it’s about one organization.”
