From reactive care to proactive health

We’re focused on connecting traditional venues, the health continuum and advanced information about a person’s lifestyle to empower individuals in their health and care. Our programmable, comprehensive suite of solutions and services leverages our strategy that is designed to enable organizations to: know and predict what will happen within a population; engage the person, their family and the care team to take action; and manage outcomes to improve health and care.

We facilitate high-performing networks and align, engage and empower health care stakeholders through our industry-recognized platform, technologies and services. Our value-driven, communitywide approach supports clinical, financial and operational needs for providers, health organizations, communities, employers, payers, and provincial and federal governments across the continuum for today and tomorrow.

The foundation of Cerner’s population health management approach is the HealtheIntentSM platform. HealtheIntent is a multi-purpose, programmable platform designed to scale at a population level while facilitating health and care at a person and provider level. Solutions built on the platform can be securely accessed anywhere, anytime. The platform:

  • Collects data from multiple, disparate sources in near real-time, including any electronic health record (EHR), existing IT system or other data sources, such as pharmacy benefit managers or insurance claims
  • Enables organizations to not only aggregate, but also transform and reconcile data across the continuum of care, establishing a longitudinal record for each person within a population
  • Identifies and stratifies populations to pinpoint gaps in care, enabling organizations to act on information and match the right care programs to the right people

Yes; HealtheIntent enables the development of applications and extensions that work seamlessly with other solutions and outside vendors. The platform promotes the extension and integration of HealtheIntent solution capabilities into existing, day-to-day applications, regardless of the transactional system being used.

No; organizations do not have to be using Cerner’s EHR to benefit from our suite of population health management solutions and services. We realize organizations need a system-agnostic platform that establishes a longitudinal record across multiple disparate systems, while leveraging your existing infrastructure.
