University of Colorado Health Doubles Margins after Installing Epic
Sustains high margins with laser focus on revenue capture

Within one year of installing Epic, University of Colorado Health more than doubled their operating margin – and they continue to maintain that higher level today, seven years later.

“Partnering with Epic allowed us to make the UC Health revenue cycle one of the best in the country,” said Anthony DeFurio, Senior VP and CFO. “The technical, clinical and operational teams all worked closely with Epic to accomplish these amazing results. The hard work paid off and, as the CFO, I couldn’t be more pleased with the results.”

They credit this in part to their laser focus on revenue capture. In their most recent major go-live in 2013, the UCHealth team rolled out Epic to an acquired hospital and replaced Cerner clinicals and McKesson revenue cycle.
