Cerner Ranks at Top of KLAS Nursing Adoption of IT Study
July 23, 2007
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – July 23, 2007 – After a survey of more than 250 healthcare organizations, KLAS recently announced that Cerner Corp.’s (NASDAQ: CERN) Cerner Millennium® solution ranked first in the KLAS Nursing Adoption of IT Study. The top ranking for adoption by nurses, combined with Cerner’s top value proposition ranking by physicians in the February 2007 KLAS CPOE (computerized physician order entry) Digest report, solidifies Cerner’s leadership position in value offered to clinicians.
Kent Gale, president of KLAS Enterprises said, “Cerner clients report the highest adoption compared with all other vendors. That is a real win for Cerner clients and for providers in general. When the bar gets raised the whole industry moves up and nurses around the country enjoy the benefit.”
The report, authored by Kent Gale, applauds Cerner for receiving first place ranking for nursing adoption and for offering the highest overall value to clients. The KLAS report further highlights integration as the real win for Cerner clients, resulting in above average user satisfaction.
The inaugural KLAS Nursing Adoption of IT Study released earlier this month compared healthcare information technology suppliers based upon nurses’ adoption and satisfaction. The overall adoption score was calculated by looking at adoption and satisfaction in six key areas: vitals, eMAR, care plans, order/results, ICU and other caregiver usage, as well as on-time “go lives,” alerting, barcode scanning and interfaced patient monitors. Cerner was the leader in the study, receiving top marks in five of the six core areas.
“At Cerner, we understand that there is no clinician more reliant on streamlined workflow than nurses,” said Roy Simpson, RN, C, FNAP, FAAN, vice president of Nursing at Cerner. “The results of this latest KLAS study demonstrate our ongoing commitment to ensure all clinicians derive significant value from the Cerner solutions that they use to provide patient care.”
