Communication across the continuum.
One directory. One care team.
Communication across the continuum – leveraging Cerner’s single directory approach, clinicians are able to search easily in one place and communicate with care team members inside and outside the 4 walls of the hospital.
Integration of patient record
Integration of patient record – leveraging Connect Nursing, care team members providing round the clock bedside care are able to view real time updates to a patient’s orders or results, as well as have immediate updates on critical results or vitals signs, often cutting down on the time it takes to gather that data.
Patient context with alerts
Patient context with alerts – because our mobility and communication workflow integrates seamlessly with the patient’s record, nurse call systems, and physiologic monitors., real time alerts can be sent to the provider caring for the patient, saving precious time in a critical situation.
Barcode meds administration
Barcode meds administration – leveraging the patient record and built in bar code scanner on the device, Connect provides the clinical team with an alternate way to give medications and increasing their mobility throughout the hospital
Right user. Right time.
Role based communications – Connect allows care team members to be assigned to patients or to a specific care team, allowing for real time alerts and notification to be routed to the right user at the right time
In comparing scan rates 3 months before go live and 3 months post go live, positive patient ID with scanning has increased 3.7% and overall medication scanning rates have increased 4.6%.

After implementing CareAware Connect™ on the TC51, the nurses feel much more empowered, they have information at their fingertips […] and Connect gives them more opportunities to be with their patient in a meaningful way.

It isn’t just the efficiencies that you gain, it’s also the patient’s experience and your staff’s experience. If they’re walking less to a patient’s room or running back and forth for things, I can have the nurse call alerts going to a smart phone and I’ve just saved them steps.
Lynne Yaggy, RN, Vice President of Clinical Services Chief Nursing Officer, CoxHealth
I just gave a pain pill and hung an IV but only had to take my [CareAware Connect™] phone, which was awesome!

Cerner and Truman working together is putting this great technology at the bedside with the nurse and provider while transforming health care. Before CareAware Connect™, we were using five different devces, and now it's our best bet.
Kassaundra McKnight-Young, BSN, RN, Senior Clinical Informaticist, Truman Medical Centers
Truman Medical Centers (TMC) staff needed to optimize nursing workflow while increasing staff satisfaction and improving patient safety. The previous devices nurses used, such as pagers, old CareMobile® devices and health system-issued phones, were nearing the end of their productive life, and the time was right to implement new mobile technology — CareAware Connect™.
