Providing efficient prescriptions

Cerner is focused on providing relevant inpatient and outpatient drug data to population health data engines and EHR interoperability organizations to assist with monitoring and assessing populations.

Our pharmacy software solutions offer a unified vision designed to help your pharmacy clinicians facilitate accurate, beneficial medication therapy decisions, outpatient drug utilization and adherence management, providing patients with an effective medication therapy regime within the health system setting, as well as after discharge.

Cerner’s approach to medication dispensing and management encompasses the health care goal of improving patient care and outcomes – connecting the patient to safe medication therapy, even after discharge. The pharmacy professional has unrivaled medication expertise, and our pharmacy solutions are designed to capitalize on their clinical capabilities, allowing them to fully realize their role within both the medication process and patient care continuum.

Inpatient pharmacy

Cerner’s inpatient pharmacy solutions are designed to help in safe closed-loop medication processes within acute care. This includes extensive clinical decision support, integrated data flow across processes and other clinical solutions and integration with automated dispensing cabinets – all within a unified, seamlessly integrated medication process.

Clinical supply chain

Cerner supply chain solutions are designed to manage supply chain functions from the central warehouse to the clinical departments, capturing supply usage at the point of care by linking inventory management to a clinical function, and thus eliminating redundant manual processes of inventory management. The set of solutions enables analysis of supply usage, support product standardization and ultimately lead to cost reduction. Automated reorder levels generating auto-requisitions facilitate just-in-time inventory management, leading to improving efficiency and reducing expired items. It also seamlessly integrates with ERP systems like Oracle.

Outpatient pharmacy

Cerner’s outpatient pharmacy solutions are designed to automate the prescription order management process in the outpatient pharmacy setting using a seamlessly integrated process from prescription to dispensing. The integration with inpatient pharmacy allows for a single view for both inpatient and outpatient orders. Outpatient pharmacy supports clinical decision support as well as batch and expiry management to facilitate safe medication dispensing.

FAQs

How do Cerner’s pharmacy solutions help clinicians manage medication therapy decisions?

Cerner’s pharmacy solutions are designed to provide a unified, seamlessly integrated medication process. The solutions assist with extensive clinical checks, ensure integrated data flow across processes and support providers with patient follow-up and therapy monitoring after discharge.

Most of Cerner’s pharmacy solutions share the same electronic health record and database, meaning you have a real-time view of important clinical data, such as unverified orders, allergy updates and patient contextual alerts, in one place at most stages of the medication process. These safety features may help prevent medication errors before providers reach the patient’s bedside.

Cerner’s retail pharmacy solutions offer comprehensive patient medication adherence and medication therapy management solutions to help you monitor your chronic disease patients’ medication therapy regimens and adherence practices after they leave your facility.
