epic special interest group

What is it?

HDAA's Epic SIG meets periodically to discuss analytics issues in and around the Epic electronic health record. The group discusses Cogito and Caboodle optimization, Slicer/Dicer and other analytics products that come with Epic. It also hosts conversations about extracting Epic data into external analytics environments.

In 2022, HDAA brought into the fold an external Microsoft/Epic users group. This group now meets as the HDAA Epic SIG. Its primary focus is still on the marriage of Microsoft tools to Epic data, but the conversations extend to non-Microsoft environments as well.
