Behavioral health

Experience Cerner's award-winning behavioral health EHR

Our specialist behavioral health EHR include multiple solutions and content packages designed to support health organizations that specialize in the delivery of community mental health, inpatient mental health, outpatient mental health, substance used disorder and developmental disabilities care.

At Cerner, we believe that behavioral health solutions should help provide a seamless and personalized experience to all mental health patients. Many healthcare organizations struggle to smoothly exchange patient data with one another. An interoperable behavioral health EHR that includes relevant workflows and documentation results in a more accurate and complete patient record. Using an EHR not intended for behavioral health can result in a disjointed patient experience. A mental health EHR should be built with the goal of optimizing the patient journey and helping get patients on a quicker and more direct path to recovery.

Behavioral health is focused on the state or being of individuals in relation to their overall health and wellness, with particular attention to brain-based antecedents of the behaviors that contribute to an individual's health and wellness. These brain-based conditions are usually broken down into a few major groupings: mental health, addiction, developmental disability and cognitive decline. Additionally, behavioral health is increasingly a focus in healthcare as it relates to patient engagement and behavioral modification/change, as the behaviors that we engage in (or fail to engage in) largely impact our overall health and wellness.

Cerner Millennium® behavioral health solutions enable improved care delivery for behavioral health professionals. They contain physician and nursing documentation and summary views to support the care provided by behavioral health professionals in the inpatient behavioral health venue. The behavioral health package includes documentation for historical information gathering, patient assessments, screenings and evaluation tools.
