MiChart at UMich starts tomorrow

Tomorrow the University of Michigan Hospitals and Clinics will stop using the electronic health records system that it developed in-house and has been using for over a decade and start using a more standard commercial product (EPIC) which has been tailored to UMich and is called MiChart.

What's going to happen? I imagine tomorrow will not be a great day to end up in the hospital. But the records-sharing features (especially with patients) will definitely be a good thing (until there's a security breach, of course).
