On Sunday 13th November, we kicked off the Cerner Physician Community (CPC) meeting. Themes included patient engagement and owning that relationship. CPC brought together clinicians from 16 countries to share ideas and best practices in health care, no matter what their specialty or country.
Mary-Ellen Piché, Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality (CPHQ), Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives (FACHE) was our keynote. "Remember: you have the ability to create lasting memories"said Piché. "Are you personalising their care? It's our job to connect. How do you make a difference?"
Dr. William Holland, VP and chief medical informatics officer at Banner Health, spoke to the crowd regarding critical steps to maximising speed and execution when implementing change. An all-in approach creates ownership for decisions and universal buy-in with the results.
Dr. Doug Dickey, Cerner's chief medical officer, highlighted enhancements to Cerner solutions developed to increase workflow management.
“We want the patient portal to be a place you get your health care, not just access records” said Dr. Tom Selva, CMIO and director of paediatrics at the University of Missouri Health care concluded on the end of day two of CPC.
