Epic Beaker Laboratory Information System (LIS)
Earlier this year, Allina Hospitals & Clinics changed its name to Allina Health to better define who we are and what we do for patients and communities. Along with this name change, we're implementing the Epic Beaker Laboratory Information System (LIS) in a phased rollout approach over the next 18 months. The first phase occurs Saturday, July 14, 2012 at select Allina Health hospitals and clinics. We'll continue to offer consolidated laboratory services from each of our ten Allina Health hospitals.
