November 02, 2016
Regional health care network brings advanced health IT platform to pursue improved care delivery and management
Inspira Health Network, one of the region’s leading networks of health care providers, has selected Cerner, a global leader in health care technology, to implement a network-wide health IT system. Named InspiraOne, Cerner’s integrated health IT system will support the delivery of care across the full continuum of primary, acute and advanced services.
“We see InspiraOne as more than just a health IT system. It’s the catalyst to dramatically transform how we are able to care for our patients at our more than 100 points of access,” said John DiAngelo, president and CEO of Inspira Health Network. “Since engaging with us after the Siemens Health Services acquisition, Cerner has proven its dedication to help us achieve our goals to improve the quality and safety of our patient care.”
As part of InspiraOne, Cerner’s Millennium® electronic health record (EHR) will be extended across Inspira’s three hospitals and more than 100 ambulatory clinics, which will displace 17 disparate IT platforms, including the Soarian clinical platform.
Inspira will also implement HealtheIntentSM, Cerner’s near real-time population health management platform designed to aggregate data from multiple sources into a single patient record. With HealtheIntent, Inspira will provide more than 1,100 clinicians a more holistic view of a person’s health status and help them develop insights and identify opportunities to improve care coordination across five counties.
Additionally, Inspira will leverage Cerner’s remote-hosting services for the management and support of its EHR, an offering where Cerner will manage and deliver clinical data from its data center.
For seven consecutive years, Cerner has been named “Best in KLAS” for its CernerWorks Remote Hosting Option. The KLAS report is based on feedback from thousands of health care providers globally who rank health care suppliers based on their ability to meet the needs of health care organizations.
“Inspira encourages its population to lead healthier lives by creating a culture of proactive health management. The network-wide EHR and population health management platforms will help Inspira manage and engage individuals across the region it serves,” said Dick Flanigan, president of Cerner HS. “We are grateful for the confidence Inspira has shown in Cerner, and we are proud to welcome them to the Cerner family.”
