Hospitals & Health Systems

We understand your challenges. We can help.

At Cerner, we believe that healthcare is too important to stay the same™. We understand that the challenges you face as a hospital or health system are unique and complex. Ineffective, disjointed systems inhibit your ability to provide the best patient care and can shrink your bottom line. Cerner offers a suite of solutions and services that extend across the continuum of care and are designed to help you operate your organization, improve workflow efficiency, engage your community and, most importantly, advance patient care. Cerner is committed to serving as your trusted health care advisor to help your organization navigate the ever-changing healthcare landscape and achieve better outcomes.

 

Benefits of our Electronic Health Record

Our integrated, interoperable, patient-centered EHR platform spans the continuum of care.

Confidence in the care you provide

Millennium

The Cerner EHR platform, Millennium®, supports an enterprise-wide view of patient care and the point at which care is delivered in both inpatient and outpatient settings. This integration across the continuum of care enables providers to make informed, data-driven decisions without leaving the clinical workflows. Millennium offers powerful decision support that utilizes predictive algorithms to fire rules and alerts, engaging providers when a patient requires care.

Clinician experience

The steady rise of burnout among clinicians is a crisis affecting the health care industry. Clinicians are experiencing an overwhelming feeling of frustration in their careers and a loss of professional fulfillment because of several factors ranging from loss of autonomy to decreased efficiency.

Cerner employs hundreds of clinicians that work alongside our clients to design intuitive solutions – applications that collaborate across mobile and desktop platforms and enhance user efficiency, productivity and satisfaction. Download our free white paper to learn more about the physician burnout crisis and what Cerner is doing to help clients and identify other methods to help organizations reduce physician burnout.

Patient experience

Empower patients to be involved in their care with our patient portal. Our portal is integrated with the EHR and provides the patient with access to their longitudinal record. Patients can communicate with providers through secure messaging to book or change appointments, view clinical information, request refills, update information and send files. Through the portal, physicians can share accredited, evidence-based data with their patients on more than 3,000 topics.

Integration across the continuum

Hospitals, clinics, physician offices, long-term care facilities, satellite clinics – all your locations – become connected. Cerner revenue cycle solutions are intimately integrated into the clinical process to enable the financial, operational and clinical facets of your organization to work together.

Interoperable

Our interoperability solutions put health information at the fingertips of clinicians, within the EHR workflow, aiming to enable clinicians to spend less time searching for information so they can spend more time with their patients. When information is freely shared across geographical and technological barriers, a more comprehensive picture of the patient’s unique medical history is available, enabling providers to make informed decisions regarding patient care.

CommonWell Health Alliance, integrated with the Cerner clinical EHR platform, facilitates nationwide interoperability. CommonWell provides infrastructure to help identify patients as they transition through care facilities; locate health records regardless of where care occurred; and retrieve relevant care documents in an efficient manner.
