The American University of Beirut Medical Center has completed the jump from their homegrown EHR to Epic, making them the first organization in Lebanon to do so.
AUBMC finished the transition from their in-house legacy system to AubHealth, their new implementation of Epic, last November. Dr. Mohamed H. Sayegh, executive vice president for medicine and global strategy at AUBMC, said the implementation will “transform AUBMC into being the gold standard of health care in Lebanon and the region” as a key piece of the organization’s 2020 Vision initiative.
