Delivering safe and efficient patient care.
Placing orders onto your connected device doesn’t just save you time on typing up notes. By contacting the relevant departments or individuals immediately, you can receive real-time clinical decision support on your order. By gaining advice on dosages, alternative medications or anything else at this point, you prevent back-and-forths later, offering patients a smoother experience.
Our OCS solution can be customised to the way that you work. You’re able to pick out your most used folders, create and save your own order filters, add your own rules and more. We know that clinicians don’t all work in exactly the same way, so we aim to make the workflow function in the most suitable way for you.
Being precise with your orders saves time for you and your colleagues, and improves the patient experience. As well as real-time clinical decision support, the Cerner OCS solution removes handwriting as a variable, meaning that the initial input will be legible to all, ensuring that the correct information is used for medication, clinical coding, reporting and more.

“We were the first in our institution to do [OCS] and electronic documentation. The overall improvement in our workflow, quality of our documentation, and shortening key processing has been remarkable.”

If your organisation is interested in building apps to meet niche workflow needs, we can help get your developers and IT team up to speed on building with Cerner Ignite APIs for Millennium. Cerner offers a three-day introductory training programme that will help your team learn skills to build on the Millennium platform.
Training offers education and hands-on exercises to help your team learn how to retrieve data with FHIR APIs, build a SMART app and secure the app. By the time they have completed training, your developers will be able to build a simple app and test it in the sandbox.
We can bring the training to your facility. Ideal class sizes will be five people or fewer. To learn more about Cerner Ignite APIs for Millennium Training, please contact us at: IgniteTraining@cerner.com
