September 01, 2015
Western Connecticut Health Network has selected Cerner, a global leader in health care information technology, to provide its electronic health record (EHR) system, which includes a full suite of clinical and financial solutions, and population health management.
“We are committed to ensuring a higher level of care and providing cutting edge technology to help improve the health of the communities we serve, one person at a time,” said Kathy DeMatteo CIO, Western Connecticut Health Network. “This technology provides the platform that will enable providers to engage with individuals beyond the four walls of the hospital to help improve outcomes and transform health care delivery.”
Western Connecticut Health Network will replace multiple existing software systems from various vendors with Cerner’s Millennium EHR full suite of acute and ambulatory solutions, as well as upgrade Soarian Enterprise Revenue Cycle solutions. Western Connecticut Health Network will leverage Cerner’s HealtheIntent population health management platform to assist with identifying health risks for individuals.
This new alignment will provide an integrated EHR across Western Connecticut Health Network’s three hospitals, 36 clinical locations and a 400 physician medical group.
“Cerner’s integrated EHR provides clinicians with access to health information across all venues of care throughout the region,” said Zane Burke, president, Cerner. “Aggregating data across the continuum of care provides the opportunity for an improved personalized patient experience.”
Western Connecticut Health Network and Cerner have collaborated since Millennium was first implemented in 1993.
