“Myth: Our Epic design team stays up late at night thinking of ways to torture you and make your life harder,” reads one tweet. “Fact: They actually go to bed pretty early.”
That’s not the musings of a rogue social media intern. That’s a March 21 tweet from EpicParodyEMR, a satirical Twitter account run by a physician practicing in the Northeastern U.S.
“I created this account to make myself laugh and just blow off steam,” said the physician, who prefers to remain nameless to avoid potential backlash from his employer and what he called the “powerful people at Epic.”
