We believe that the best way to manage the health of a population is one person at a time. By turning data into knowledge, people and their care providers can work more efficiently and effectively together, cultivating a mindset of proactive health, rather than reactive care. Cerner’s strategy with clients for population health management is to know your population in order to focus attention, to find and engage citizens to take an active role, and to actively manage each individual to improve their health and wellbeing.
