You are welcome - My experience

I've always worked on site and work for a mid size multispecialty clinic/hospital group. We've had Epic for about 5 years and went from a department of around 30 down to 2 QA people and a back-up MT, I was lucky to be chosen to remain. We probably have around 50 providers who still choose to straight dictate but many facilities do not give providers that choice, newcomers are steered toward Dragon and that is how most of our work gets done with the docs doing their own editing. Everything is outsourced with the exception of one document type that we have transcribe on site. I guess facilities can tailor Epic to meet their needs, but for us there was never a transcription module and transcription on site was never in the plan. When we did stats, we created a Word document and scanned it into the record. You will probably still see reports in your queue but I'm guessing the volume will be down or the way you do the documentation will be different. You really need exposure to Epic in entirety to understand how the processes relate. There are also meaningful use initiatives which affect how facilities are reimbursed based on how effectively they use the system. Sorry to be long winded, I hope this was helpful, good luck.
