Northeastern Health System (NHS) has selected Cerner to implement an integrated electronic health record (EHR) and revenue cycle management system across its acute and ambulatory facilities.

"Growth is a continuous part of the NHS atmosphere, and Cerner will help us continue to advance in providing high quality care," said Cari Felts, MSN, RN, CENP, assistant vice president of clinical nursing, NHS. "Cerner’s fully integrated EHR and revenue management will support our ability to provide and improve upon the health care services our community has come to depend on.”

NHS will transition to the Cerner Millennium® EHR, a health care IT platform designed to support an individual’s health care journey across the continuum – from the doctor’s office to the hospital and outpatient clinics – with consistent patient engagement. The Millennium EHR system will provide NHS physicians with an integrated digital record of their patients’ health history, including clinical and financial data. Through the new online patient portal, patients will be able to securely message physicians, schedule appointments and easily access their health history.

The Cerner CommunityWorks cloud-based deployment model will support NHS toward providing improved health services and care to the residents of Tahlequah and beyond. This prescriptive IT platform is tailored to support community health care organizations that provide care to rural communities. The Cerner CommunityWorks model will support NHS’s two hospitals and six clinics in northeastern Oklahoma.

“NHS is a thriving community health care organization making a major impact on the populations they serve,” said Michael Farrell, vice president, CommunityWorks, Cerner. “It is exciting for Cerner to be involved with and help support NHS’s continued growth and advancement in providing essential care and health services.”

NHS will now be able to integrate clinical and financial information into one patient record with revenue cycle management solutions in the Millennium EHR. Cerner’s Clinically Driven Revenue Cycle™ is designed to provide clinicians and staff with the resources to update the billing process throughout the patient’s visit, enhance clinical documentation to help improve reimbursement and limit claims errors. NHS patients will benefit by having a streamlined financial experience.

“As our community continues to grow, so too does its health care needs,” said Jim Berry, executive vice president and hospital administrator, NHS. “With the help of Cerner, we will continue to advance our reputation as an exceptional regional health care provider by evolving to the health and wellness needs of the ‘Green Country’ and northeast Oklahoma.”
