EHR Doctors generated continuity of Care Documents (CCD's) from UnityPoint Health'sMeditech, McKesson, Allscripts, and Practice Partner legacy EHR 's, which UnityPoint Health imported into the Epic EHR. The result is the continuity of patient health records making them accessible to any provider using the Epic EHR. UnityPoint Health is a network of hospitals and clinics in Iowa and Illinois.

"EHR Doctors has completed data conversion from Meditech and McKesson into an Epic importable CCD. The results have been accurate, efficient and met our short go live timetables." - Doug Heisler, Manager, Interoperability UnityPoint Health
