Following the acquisition of Siemens Health Services, Cerner runs and develops the DocuLive electronic health record and DocuLive Patologi lab information system for pathology.

DocuLive takes care of the complex clinical workflow in hospitals and increases the efficacy of health care. The system is used by more than 30,000 clinicians and is a secure, flexible and user-friendly tool that increases the quality of care.

DocuLive electronic health record

DocuLive is an object-oriented electronic health record system implemented on the Microsoft .NET platform. This opens up for highly efficient development tools and methods, like native support for integration with other systems through a Service Oriented Architecture. Web Services is used for interoperability with applications on any platform. On top of Microsoft SQL Server, a generic object-oriented layer has been created which results in a very flexible and configurable user interface. Connection to external systems, as for instance patient administrative systems, is based on synchronous, transaction-based integration using web services and remote procedure calls. Integration with service systems such as lab systems, RIS/PACS, microbiology etc., is mainly based on asynchronous messages like XML, HL7, EDIFACT and other protocols.

Modules available in DocuLive electronic health record:

  • General Clinical Documentation
  • Messaging
  • Physician Order Entry
  • Scanning
  • Digital dictation; Digital Speech Recognition
  • “Doogle” free text search

DocuLive Patologi

The system handles several sample types: cytology, biopsy, histology, autopsies, forensic autopsies and some special lab results.

The system integrates with a variety of equipment and has useful functionality such as: administration of users and patients, worklists for the various laboratories and clinicians become generated automatically.
