The Johns Hopkins Medicine Epic 2018 Upgrade will occur on February 10, 2019. All enhancement requests that have not already been completed will be postponed until at least February 18th, and personal editing of smart phrases and preferences will be locked between February 5th and 10th to allow the upgrade to gather a stable copy of your preferences.
