Allowing clinicians to react quickly and support patients’ journeys.
Cerner FirstNet® is the emergency solution that supports the wide range of functions that you require in your emergency department. It helps you to track your patients within the department, provides all the information you need at the right time and right place, and supports multidisciplinary decision making to allow effective and safe operational management of the ED.
Pre-arrival functionality is provided at the department level to allow the capture of important information without registering the patient first. This allows the entry of time-critical information before the arrival of the patient at the ED and means you can be proactive about bed management for incoming patients to the department.
FirstNet is designed to meet your needs to ensure an efficient ED. That’s why customisation is available for doctors and nurses, as well as organisation-specific requirements, such as lengths of stay, location views and more. This helps to ensure that workflows are intuitive and simple to use as soon as they go live in your ED. The more comfortable the clinicians, the more comfortable the patients they are treating.
Staff at Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust (SASH) are now able to dedicate more time to patient care, after becoming the first Cerner Trust in the UK to use Child Protection – Information (CP-IS) to speed up the process of checking essential information for vulnerable child patients.
“[An ED patient seemingly had a straight forward vomiting illness, but] the physician was able to access the growth chart and identified failure to thrive and weight loss, also leading to additional underlying causes of the patient's problems.”
— Dr Emily C Webber, medical director of paediatric clinical informatics, Indiana University Health
“Having the radiology and [emergency department] reports for all sites on [Cerner's] HIE is just brilliant.”
— Bhupinder Kohli, clinical IT/M lead, NHS Newham Clinical Commissioning Group
“Cerner provides me the flexibility to tailor my workflow with the EHR rather than around it. I can process a patient document faster in FirstNet than I can dictate because I can pre-save a lot of my note.”
— Dr Terrance Donnal, chief medical information officer, Black River Memorial Hospital
