Company Updates

3 November 2022
More than 1,800 new staff joined Epic this summer, but Quinn (pictured below) has a very special connection to our history. Neither he nor anyone at Epic knew before he attended Corporate Philosophy. Quinn, we all learned, is the grandson of a woman named Francine (also pictured below). Almost everyone at Epic knows Francine on a first name basis. Seriously. If you’ve ever received an overview of Epic, you might too. In 2008, Francine was the first person to have her health information shared through Epic’s Care Everywhere, now the nation’s largest interoperability network. It’s what helps providers coordinate care across healthcare facilities. So, as Quinn learned that morning in Deep Space, Francine is a big deal around here. “They told me that my grandma loved the spotlight. She was very excited about her contribution to Epic—you can see it in her smile. It makes us very happy to know that her legacy lives on through a company like Epic.” It makes us happy too, Quinn 😊

A great program for kids got even better. You love to see it. For 20 years, Cleveland Clinic has supported Vision First: an outreach program that sends a van to 86 area elementary schools to offer free vision screenings, eye exams, referrals, and glasses. That van is now equipped with Epic, so the care that children receive fits into—and is informed by—their comprehensive patient stories. With internet- and Epic-equipped vans, the Vision First team can see each child’s health history during an exam, allowing them to diagnose new vision problems, follow up on care plans for existing vision problems, and even review non-vision-related info—like notes on physical and behavioral health—that can help them keep children comfortable during their exams. And of course, now that the optometrist’s exam notes are in each child’s electronic record, other providers that use any interoperable EHR can later access information from the visit.

  1. Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Epic (United States)

    Interview

    Phone screen (30 mins) > online test (3 hours) > final interview (3 hours)

    You can find all the questions you need to succeed by looking through Glassdoor. I scraped through hundreds of the interviews here and no question I was asked wasn't here, so study up and prep your answers.

    Phone screen is easy, but the test was honestly really difficult and determines your fate. Lots of logic, pseudo-coding, math, and English grammar skills.

    The final day is a few rounds but at this point, maybe half will get an offer (software demo, PM role overview, case study, presentation, wrap-up with recruiter). Come prepared, speak about something you know well for your presentation, and you'll be fine.

Everyone has the same experience and seniority. All four team members think that one action should be taken, and the team leader wants to do something else. The team members believe that what the leader wants to do will waste time and money for the client. * Two situations: one where you are the team leader and one where you are one of the four others.
