Monday marked the end of Cerner Physician Community and the beginning of the formal Cerner Health Conference program. The day was highlighted by our first general session speakers, Kevin Hines and Kana Enomoto. Kevin, a best-selling author on brain health who survived an attempt to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge, shared his incredibly moving story and spoke to the importance of promoting mental health around the world.

Kana, the principal deputy administrator for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, discussed national efforts to improve care for mental health conditions across the continuum in the U.S.

Cerner President Zane Burke greeted 15,000 Cerner clients, partners and associates by saying "Together, we can make a difference and create healthier stories."

Following the general session, CHC attendees illuminated the night with a glow walk from the Sprint Center to Cerner's solutions gallery reception at the Kansas City Convention Center.

Cerner Physician Community (CPC) and Revenue Cycle Symposium education sessions continued on throughout the day.

Dr. James Landman, director of health care finance policy, perspective and analysis for HFMA, discussed the complex regulatory programs and evolving market trends shaping revenue cycle. Landman also discussed best practices and strategies to navigate the shift to value-based care. "MACRA has created demand for commercial APMs (alternative payment models)," Landman said. "Very few consumers understand their health plan. I don't think high-deductible plans are going away."

Dr. Alan Weiss, chief medical informatics officer at Houston-based Memorial Hermann Health Center, and Dr. Tom Selva, chief medical informatics officer and director of pediatrics at the University of Missouri Health care, rounded out the second day's slate of presenters at CPC: "We want the patient portal to be a place you get your health care, not just access records," said Dr. Selva.
