Lexington Regional Health Center (LRHC), a rural critical access hospital in Central Nebraska, has teamed up with Cerner to transform its electronic health record (EHR) in a 10-year agreement to replace disparate systems in its hospital and three urgent care clinics. The Cerner Millennium® EHR provides LRHC with an integrated digital record of a patient’s health history that includes clinical and financial data across the continuum of care. Through a new online portal, patients can securely message doctors, schedule appointments, view and settle balances and access their health history.
“Our mission at LRHC is to optimize the health of our patients and community through innovation and excellence in care,” said Leslie Marsh, CEO, LRHC. “This investment in our hospital’s EHR will standardize documentation across all platforms at LRHC, and further exemplifies the commitment we have to our patients and our community.”
The Cerner Millennium platform will be deployed through Cerner CommunityWorksSM, a cloud-based model that is specifically tailored to meet the unique needs of community, critical access and specialty hospitals. By implementing this technology, LRHC will move to an updated, electronic system that supports physicians, nurses and clinicians to share health care data across the entire organization.
“LRHC is a progressive organization with a clear vision for health care in their community,” said Mitchell Clark, president, CommunityWorks, Cerner. “We look forward to helping this organization achieve continued success and improve patient care for its community.”
