ARMC's Electronic Health Record Receives “Gold Stars Level 9” Designation

Colton, CA — Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC) has received a “Gold Stars Level 9” designation from Epic Systems Corporation for continually improving its electronic health record (EHR), placing it in the top 16 percent of all health systems using the Epic Systems application.

Achieving “Gold Stars Level 9” means that ARMC has adopted at least 85 percent of the Epic Gold Star features. The designation also measures patient access, patient experience, clinical quality and safety, population health management, physician productivity, and nursing and clinical team productivity.

“This achievement is a significant milestone in our journey to optimizing our EHR for all users,” said John Brill, M.D., ARMC’s Chief Medical Officer. “It reflects our team’s commitment to providing exceptional care to our patients and is a true testament to the team’s hard work, dedication, and experience.”

Epic’s Gold Stars program encourages health systems to continue with upgrades and use the full functionality of a system once an EHR has been implemented.

Arrowhead Regional Medical Center is a 456-bed university-affiliated teaching hospital licensed by the State of California Department of Public Health, operated by San Bernardino County, and governed by the Board of Supervisors. It is ARMC’s mission, in an environment of learning and innovation, to serve our diverse community with high-quality, compassionate care.

GnanaDev Level I Trauma Center, a comprehensive stroke center, a behavioral health center, and five primary care centers. ARMC also provides more than 40 outpatient specialty care services.
