Here's an update to our July 20, 2006 posting.SV

MORGANTOWN -- Not one to fall behind on technology, West Virginia University Hospitals is spending at least $40 million on its new electronic medical records system that organizers say could revolutionize health care delivery at affiliated hospitals.

Dr. Ann Chinnis is executive director of WVU's EPIC project, and that is no pun on the scope of the undertaking. EPIC is the name of the computer program WVU is purchasing to revamp how it handles medical records and other information.
