Out with the Old and in with the New

Hyperspace is Epic’s electronic health record (EHR) software that is typically hosted on Citrix. It provides a wide range of features, including patient registration, appointment scheduling, clinical systems for doctors, billing systems for insurers, and more.

Hyperdrive, on the other hand, represents the next generation of Epic’s EHR software. Hosted on a web-based platform, Hyperdrive is designed to be more intuitive, faster, and more efficient. It aims to streamline workflows, reduce administrative burdens, and ultimately enhance patient care.

Understanding the Shift and Impact on Healthcare Systems

Hyperspace, typically hosted on Citrix, has been a reliable platform for healthcare systems, providing a comprehensive suite of applications for patient care, revenue cycle, and analytics. However, the advent of Hyperdrive, a web-based platform, promises a more streamlined, efficient, and user-friendly experience. Hyperdrive focuses on enhancing user experience and bolstering the speed and efficiency of healthcare delivery.

The transition to a web-based platform like Hyperdrive will bring about several changes for healthcare systems. The new platform promises to improve workflows, reduce administrative burdens, and enhance patient care. The change introduces a possibility for migration back to traditional PC’s due to the web-based nature of Hyperdrive, however, a change like that introduces another huge burden on IT administrators. Keeping your infrastructure virtualized will eliminate these burdens while keeping the benefits of a virtualized environment in place, one solution could be to migrate to VMware’s Horizon View.
