Medical device connectivity

Cerner does more than simply connect devices to the EHR

Cerner’s device connectivity solutions enable interoperability between medical devices, healthcare applications and the EHR, regardless of vendor, enabling clinicians to streamline their workflows and focus more on their patients.

Cerner’s integrated devices ensure the right data is presented in the right format at the right time to improve health outcomes.

We enable interoperability between medical devices, healthcare applications and the EHR, regardless of their provider. The CareAware® workflow-driven architecture integrates devices to provide an electronic flow of patient and clinical information for healthcare professionals as the single source of truth. This ensures the right data is presented in the right format in real-time to improve health outcomes.

CareAware validation offers you a layer of assurance – ensuring that the right devices have been validated to support specific workflows. The validation process comprises standards that have been established collaboratively with clients by clinical, technical and solution experts. Devices are thoroughly tested before they are deemed as validated.


How are devices validated for CareAware iBus®?

When CareAware was launched in 2007, medical device connectivity was a new endeavor for healthcare organizations, technology companies and device manufacturers. Years later, Cerner and our clients have gone beyond connectivity to request devices perform in the context of a clinical workflow. The Cerner CareAware validation program is an active approach to partner relationships across development, sales, marketing and support. The program is focused on connecting devices to our CareAware iBus, as well as providing an additional layer of assurance that the device performs in the context of a specific workflow.

With nearly 60 validated members today, we work closely to capture and deliver pertinent clinical data to any EHR.
