Modernizing Healthcare Documentation

Enterprise documentation can help drive intuitive workflows

Information is powerful – especially in an enterprise healthcare setting. It influences clinical actions and drives how revenue cycle teams operate in their daily workflows. That’s why focusing on documentation efficiencies surrounding healthcare information is so important.

When information is captured, processed, and viewed efficiently within the EHR, healthcare teams and ultimately, patients see the benefit. Connecting automation and intelligence into daily workflows helps ensure that paper and electronic documents are incorporated in the chart quickly and accurately. When we improve access to information required for informed clinical and operational decision making, we help create a more patient-centric EHR.

How do I view document images?

Documents open in an embedded viewer within various Cerner Millennium® workflows allowing for the end user to continue their tasks while viewing necessary images. End users view posted documents within the context of the patient and encounter while performing clinical workflows. Documents will be grouped together by document type. Certain workflows allow for document viewing across encounters if needed. Images can be processed and stored in black and white or color to keep the integrity of the original document.
