Epic@Jeff
Application Definitions

The Epic@Jeff suite of applications will transform the way Jefferson delivers high-quality, patient-centered care.  Each application is intuitively named based on its purpose.  For example, ASAP will be used in the emergency department, Stork will organize obstetric care and EpicCare will contain the patient’s chart.  Each application offers its own benefits but all will provide better functionality, ease of use and efficiencies for Jefferson’s clinicians, business professionals and patients.
