Our Design Rooms (simulated hospital environments) allow clinicians and managers to understand and improve their workflows. In implementing Cerner solutions we help our clients to identify key organisation imperatives, such as financial savings or patient safety initiatives, and align them with the capabilities of Cerner Millennium.
