Epic and Cerner are comprised of many interrelated
software components. Cerner SurgiNet is the interface
by which all perioperative care flows (https://www.
cerner.com/solutions/perioperative). Epic Anesthesia,
the intraoperative AIMS module, is often implemented
with Epic OpTime, Epic's perioperative management
suite.

Caveat: each institution's implementation of Epic
or Cerner will be different, potentially with different
features and workflow modifications, but the core
product will form the basis for our comparison.
