Epic's market focus is large health care organizations. Epic offers an integrated suite of health care software centered on a Caché database provided by InterSystems. Their applications support functions related to patient care, including registration and scheduling; clinical systems for doctors, nurses, emergency personnel, and other care providers; systems for lab technicians, pharmacists, and radiologists; and billing systems for insurers.
In 2003, Kaiser Permanente, the largest managed care organization in the United States, chose Epic Systems for its electronic records system. Epic also provides electronic record systems for Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, the Cleveland Clinic, and Johns Hopkins Hospital.
An Epic electronic health record system costing £200 million was installed at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in October 2014, the first installation of an EPIC system in the UK. 2.1 million records were transferred to it. Within a short time it developed serious problems and had to be shut down. However, Chief information officer, Afzal Chaudhry, said "well over 90% of implementation proceeded successfully".
