Other Integrations

But wait! There's more! We've also created custom integrations using the following approaches.

Real-Time Location System (RTLS) Interface read the specRead the technical specs

This bi-directional HL7 v3 interface is used, generically, to track movement of a patient through a certain physical area. In Epic, this interface can be used to track patient movement to automate transfers, surgical case tracking events, and treatment team assignment. Current integrations include...

Outgoing BSN Verification Query

BSN or Burgerservicenummer verification is required in the Netherlands. There are two types of BSN queries: BSN request, and BSN verification. Using provided demographic data, a BSN request will retrieve and store the BSN for a patient, whereas the BSN verification serves to validate that the BSN a user has stored to the patient record is correct.

Voice Recognition and Dictation Integration

Integrated dictation/speech recognition solutions pass context information, and in some cases status updates, automatically between Epic and the dictation/speech recognition system. Epic offers several integrated third-party dictation/speech recognition solutions. Current integrations include...

PC-based Vitals Integration

This interface is used to integrate real-time PC-based vitals machines in a clinic with the Epic EMR. Devices are used to record patient vitals and communicated to the device manufacturer's program. Vitals are then offered to the EMR and validated by the user before they are copied into the chart. Current integrations include...
  • Midmark IQVitals
  • Welch Allyn


This interface allows for tighter integration between Epic's Home Health product and third-party telephony vendors. The EMR exports patient information about scheduled home health visits and tasks that need to be performed as a part of the visit. The caregiver performs the visit and records his or her actions through the telephony system, which then triggers the information back to the Epic EMR for charging and clinical documentation. Current integrations include...

  • CellTrak
  • Home Health Aide Exchange

External Application Linking

The Epic EMR provides a robust framework for launching external applications - desktop or web - via remote procedure call. The launch, because it is triggered from within the EMR, can provide dynamic contextual information based on the patient, visit, or order that is currently displayed in Epic.You can email us to receive a simple testing harness that will help you validate that your web application can be successfully embedded.
Epic's patient portal can link to other patient-specific websites through functionality known as Dynamic Links. Dynamic Links are used to launch external websites from within the portal. The link can be configured to pass context about the patient through query string parameters, optionally encrypted using RC4 or AES. Current integrations include...

Credit Card and Check Scanning Device Integration read the specRead the technical specs

In addition to the Credit Card and Bank Account Integration specification, Epic provides separate and additional support for non-keyboard emulation credit card devices. This integration is handled through an interface between Epic and your gateway software. The gateway software integrates with the device and provides Epic with transaction results for the credit card payment. This integration is handled through the patient kiosk and by front desk personnel during check-in or check-out. This interface is supplemental to the generic credit card interface described above and should be implemented in addition to that interface if you want to provide support for EMV devices. Current integrations include...

Outgoing IRIS Ophthalmology Encounter Summary

Epic automatically generates a document that meets the specifications of the Intelligent Research in Sight (IRIS) registry. This highly specialized registry uses a documentation format that does not conform to the standards of other registries. The generated document contains a summary of the patient's ophthalmology-related encounter and is intended to be used only in the context of outpatient visits.
