In addition to sessions...

Success at Seven Series

You've read about these outcomes in Epic's 'Success at Seven' newsletter series. Now you can hear details from the people who made them happen. This series isn't about getting there, but instead how you can change healthcare with technology.

Snap Session Theater

Snap Sessions are brief build-focused talks led by customers where an innovative idea is presented and a concrete takeaway is given. These sessions are fast-paced and high-value – sharing useful nuggets you'll want to quickly implement back home (in a snap).


The most popular topics will be assigned a room and a moderator for open group discussion during session hours. (Just like regular sessions, but not quite.) Check the Pocket Guide for the final schedule.

Specialty Unsessions

UGM will host a series of specialty-workflow-focused Unsessions. We provide a moderator and the space; you provide the questions and the experience. We will also be looking for people who are interested in being more involved with the specialty community. Check your pocket guide for times and locations of each specialty.

Focus Groups

During these product-specific meetings, you'll have the chance to meet with developers to learn about enhancements under way. Each focus group provides a detailed analysis of an existing product and includes a summary of features added since last year's UGM. Users are encouraged to join in the discussion regarding future development.

Enhancement Suggestions?

All users are now able to enter their own enhancement suggestions and to review, comment on, and "like" the suggestions entered by other customers. Visit

Strategic Design Groups

Join in as developers demonstrate modules, systems, and workflows. By providing input at these sessions, you can help us develop software that will better meet the needs of the entire Epic community.
