Capacity and workforce management

Better management for your people and your patients

A hospital’s workforce is its biggest expense, so it is critical to appropriately plan for staffing needs and have those needs align to individual patient care. Cerner is committed to delivering automated and intelligent solutions for healthcare organizations to provide the best care at the lowest cost.

Workforce management

Cerner Clairvia solutions begin with a simple insight: by assigning the right caregivers to the right patients at the right time, you can improve patient safety and care quality, achieve superior care outcomes and reduce costs. Our solutions are designed to optimize every moment of the care cycle by empowering clients to deliver the right resources to every patient at the point of care.

The solution includes workforce management, which allows staff management, physician scheduling, and patient assignment. Resource demand management allows for care to be based on patient acuity and compares each patient’s expected clinical progress to actual progress, in every moment from admission to discharge. This provides a clear picture of how they may move through the care cycle, and empowers care teams to set evidence-based departure dates.


Clinical Inventory Management

The Model Experience clinical inventory management standard design provides a comprehensive approach in Cerner Millennium® through optimal configuration and content.


Cerner Imaging brings together image-enabled workflows and near-real-time data to provide clinicians with a holistic patient view directly within the EHR for cardiovascular, radiology, clinical and enterprise imaging. This single source of truth ensures both advanced capabilities, such as decision support, within daily imaging workflows while also helping meet current and future regulatory requirements.


Cerner was founded in 1979 as a company focused on laboratory professionals and the solutions that help them succeed. Cerner offers a complete suite of solutions targeted toward the four key segments of the complex laboratory – clinical, anatomic pathology, molecular diagnostics and laboratory outreach – that can also function fully via seamless interface with your non-Cerner EHR.
