Through the Looking Glass: An Epic UGM ’16 Recap in Pictures

epic-in-wonderlandThe theme of this year's Epic User Group Meeting (UGM '16) was An Adventure in Wonderland, and Lewis Carroll himself would have been awed by the festivities.

Some 18,000 Epic users descended on the Verona, Wisc. campus, where they were briefed on the company's vision for the future and saw updates to the Epic product suite. There were also case studies and peer-to-peer learning opportunities as well as talks on topical healthcare challenges such as population health and data security.

Alice in Wonderland-themed entertainment and costumes were plentiful. CEO Judy Faulkner dressed as the Mad Hatter at the event's opening session, and news accounts described a large tent outside the main auditorium as "cluttered with miniature tea pavilions, halls of mirrors, and rabbit-hole recreations."

Instagram users captured and shared much of the conference color on their phones and cameras. Below we share some of our favorites pics from the week:

The morning views were stunning...
