If you are part of the Epic leadership team in your hospital or health system, then Epic UGM 2017 (Sept 25-28) should be on your calendar. Unlike the Epic XGM meetings, geared toward the analyst and trainer communities, the annual Epic UGM (Users’ Group Meeting) is designed for executives, directors, clinical staff and others with a strategic focus.
The theme of Epic UGM 2017 is World of Wizards, a nod to the new Wizards Academy-themed buildings on the Epic campus, styled after the architecture of Hogwarts in the Harry Potter movies.
The schedule for this year’s meeting follows the same format of recent years with CIO and CEO sessions on the first Monday, followed by the much anticipated General Assembly on Tuesday. Download the UGM mobile app for complete scheduling, session descriptions, and valuable networking tools.
As the event attracts close to 20,000 attendees to the Madison (WI) area, hotels and flights book quickly, so it’s never too early to get planning. (And if you’re a first-time attendee, get ready by checking out pics from UGM 2016.) See you in Verona!
