EMR Mergers: Benefits Part 2

The merger between Advocate Health Care and Aurora Health Care resulted in increased revenue and increased patient volume. However, the merger of the two Epic System, Resurrection Health Care Corp. and Provena Health, didn't achieve the expected benefits.

The Merger of two Epic Systems


Research Strategy

Metrics-backed benefits of the Advocate Health Care and Aurora Health Care merger were identified and reported above. For the merger of the two Epic systems referenced in the research strategy, we first determined that the Epic System merger was that of Resurrection Health Care Corp. and Provena Health in the state of Illinois. Then, we looked at the expected benefits during the merger and the results thereafter. An analysis showed that benefits were not realized, therefore, the impact the merger had instead was negative.
