Odyssey leaders coming to your departments


Project Odyssey will reach its destination on June 4, 2022. That’s less than a year away! A lot has already happened to get HHS to this point in its journey to becoming an Epic hospital, and there is more work ahead, including learning and testing the new system to make sure everyone and everything is ready for go-live.


How does this affect you? When does training start and what does that look like? These are questions that will come up more in the coming months.


Here are some upcoming opportunities to help you learn more about your role in HHS’ journey to Epic.


For all staff and physicians


Town hall – every other Thursday


Get high-level updates from project leaders about what’s happening across the organization. Town hall is held every other Thursday from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. An invitation with Zoom information will arrive in your inbox the morning of the event.


Odyssey News – every other Thursday


The Odyssey newsletter will arrive in your HHS inbox every other Thursday. In it you’ll find project updates, answers to frequently asked questions, profiles of staff and physicians working on this once-in-a-lifetime clinical project, stories about all the cool things Epic can do, and more. You can find past newsletters on the Hub.


For leaders


Site Councils


A progress update about Project Odyssey will be delivered by Filomena Canci, HHS’ Chief Nursing Information Officer, at each Site Council meeting until the end of December.
