    NCH Healthcare System, an alliance of more than 500 independent physicians and medical facilities in dozens of locations throughout Collier County and southwest Florida, uses Cerner® solutions to reduce pressure ulcer rates from more than 12 percent to less than 2 percent.

    NCH Healthcare System has a commitment and reputation for providing high-quality patient care. Using Cerner solutions, NCH has realized significant benefits, including:

    • Reduced pressure ulcer rate from more than 12 percent to less than 2 percent
    • Increased the number of orders entered by physicians from 10 percent to nearly 50 percent
    • Provided remote access to the Electronic Medical Record to more than 350 physicians

    In addition to the clinical improvements, NCH has been able to reduce the amount of time for admitting patients by 20 minutes per patient, using pre-populated fields and real-time data. That translates into more than 6,000 hours per year redirected to patient care.

    “My staff likes the Cerner system’s ability to immediately provide them with patient information at their fingertips, rather than having to wait for paper charts to arrive.”
