HFMA’s Voices in Healthcare Finance

Judy Faulkner and Epic’s Opposition to HHS’s Interoperability Rule

January 28, 2020

Epic Founder and CEO Judy Faulkner made headlines last week with an email urging clients to join Epic in opposing a proposed rule from the Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS) around information sharing. Citing privacy concerns on behalf of patients, Faulkner said she hopes to collaborate with HHS but also said Epic may sue if the final rule does not adequately address the company's concerns.

This special episode of Voices in Healthcare Finance includes HFMA's Rich Daly and Chad Mulvany discussing Faulkner's recent comments as well as HFMA President and CEO Joe Fifer's interview with Faulkner, originally released in 2019. In that interview, Faulkner talked about her leadership philosophy and what it takes to launch an enterprise like Epic from the ground up.
