IT analysts throughout Methodist Health System say their recent seamless software conversion was a direct result of using Cerner’s Upgrade Center. The 471-bed hospital system completed its latest conversion in June 2015, and by utilizing Upgrade Center resources, the Omaha-based organization successfully made the transition faster and with fewer errors. “Before switching to the Upgrade Center, the IT analysts were responsible for testing pretty much everything,” said Systems Analyst Paula Grupe. “It was difficult because we didn’t know all of the workflows.” Methodist Health System’s 137-person IT staff was forced to put their day-to-day projects on a two-month hold and spend most of their time testing. “We were learning and trying to figure out the appropriate phases and trying to escalate those issues ourselves,” said Director of Systems Development Susan Clauser. Using the Upgrade Center allowed Methodist Health System to shift a large portion of the solution testing and coding to Cerner associates. These trained analysts brought solution-specific knowledge to the table and made for a higher quality conversion.
I can't imagine doing an upgrade alone — it would be impossible."

At the CHIME Fall 2016 CIO Forum this week; two national health care organizations are honoring University of Missouri Health Care in Columbia, Mo., for its exceptional work in health care informatics. Tom Selva, MD, MU Health Care’s chief medical information officer, and Bryan Bliven, chief information officer, accepted the Transformational Leadership Award on Wednesday, Nov. 2 in Phoenix. “In our system, we don’t do information technology projects,” Dr. Selva said. “We do projects for our patients and our clinicians that are enabled by IT. That’s an important distinction, and one that ensures we’re meeting the needs of our consumers.” The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) and the American Hospital Association (AHA) sponsor the award, which honors organizations for “developing and deploying transformational information technology” that improves and streamlines care.
