Epic sued by advocacy group

Citing a lack of accessibility to the non-public facing side of medical records software, the National Federation of the Blind has filed a civil action lawsuit against Epic Systems, according to a report in the Capital Times.

The advocacy group, which filed the suit last month in Massachusetts state court, claims the Verona-based Epic violated that state’s discrimination laws by not making software products that are compatible with screen readers that workers, including visually impaired workers, use in health systems, clinics, and hospital settings. The screen readers convey visual information through synthesized speech, sounds, and Braille.
