Do Not Select Departments/Units Beginning with ZZZ

To avoid billing and reporting issues, don’t select departments in Epic that begin with ‘ZZZ.’ These departments are reserved for the following:

  • Department closures: For billing and reporting reconciliation, departments remain in Epic for six months before deletion.
  • New departments: Departments built in preparation for future expansions; awaiting activation.

Please be mindful of your department selection, as department names may look similar.
