Hospitals and health systems from coast to coast continue to trust Oracle Cerner to enhance the patient and caregiver experiences. From April to June 2022, Cerner executed more than 161 new, extended, or expanded contracts. This includes 11 new clients who chose Cerner technology and products.


CLINICAL TRIALS

As announced in May, a collaboration with Freemone and Elligo Health Research is supporting clinical trials aimed at advancing early cancer detection, one of the first cancer screening trials available to the rapidly growing Oracle Cerner Learning Health Network. This collaboration uses the research-activated network of health systems, real-world data (RWD), and Freenome’s multiomics technology to help accelerate the critical speed needed to detect some cancers before progressive advancement in disease stage or metastasis.


REHABILIATION

Encompass Health, a national leader in integrated healthcare services with a network of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and home health and hospice agencies, recently extended their contract another 10 years to add voice technology, remote hosting, and application managed services to help its providers continue to deliver and receive care leveraging their existing suite of Oracle Cerner solutions. Encompass also recently went live with Cerner Millennium at its 150th inpatient rehab facility.

ClearSky Health, a premier rehabilitative healthcare provider, began working with Cerner in 2019 and has now expanded their contract an additional five years to support nine additional facilities. Cerner’s electronic health record (EHR) for rehabilitation providers supports continuity, helping clinicians understand a patient’s journey from admission to discharge. This Software as a Service (SaaS) solution also helps caregivers document the treatment received throughout a patient’s stay and create a comprehensive patient record.


RURAL, CRITICAL ACCESS & COMMUNITY HEALTH

Oracle Cerner continues to see significant growth with CommunityWorksSM supporting the needs of rural, critical access and community hospitals, with 11 new clients signed since April.
