Connect Cerner’s electronic health record (EHR) to the revenue cycle to fuel a clinically driven revenue cycle system. With the evolution of the reimbursement model, bundled payments and others, efficient management of care has never been more important.
Leverage document management across the EHR – enabling integrated workflows within Cerner Millennium®. Cerner's Enterprise Document Management solutions provide health care organizations the ability to automate document-intensive processes and create comprehensive electronic records for the enterprise. These integrated solutions allow organizations to incorporate paper and electronic documentation directly into the patient's chart in real time.
Streamline HIM workflows. Accessing information and completing tasks through seamless integration with Cerner’s EHR impacts coder effectiveness and coding efficiencies. In order to avoid delays, your care team needs streamlined workflows, processes and efficiencies to deliver quality health care through quality information.
Information is powerful. Getting complete and accurate information from patients at the point-of-service is a necessary step to help manage your organization's cash flow. From the point-of-service, manage a patient's identity by creating a single patient record with a complete picture of the patient's health and financial information.
