Hospitals & Health Systems

We understand your challenges. We can help.

At Cerner, we believe that health care is too important to stay the same™. We understand that the challenges you face as a hospital or health system are both unique and complex. Ineffective, disjointed systems inhibit your ability to provide the best patient care and can shrink your bottom line. Cerner offers a dynamic suite of solutions and services that extend beyond the continuum of care to help you operate your organization, improve workflow efficiency, engage your community in its own well-being and, most importantly, continually advance patient care. Cerner is committed to serving as your trusted health care advisor to help your organization navigate the ever-changing health care 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 was delivered in both acute inpatient and outpatient settings. This seamless 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.

Physician experience

We believe being a physician is far more than just a title or a role; it’s a calling. Cerner employs over 100 physicians, and we work alongside our clients to design intuitive solutions – applications that collaborate across platforms (mobile and desktop) and enhance user efficiency, productivity and satisfaction.

Patient experience

Empower patients to be involved in their care with our patient portal. Our portal is integrated with the EHR system 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

Seamlessly integrated

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 ensure that the financial, operational and clinical facets of your organization work together.

Interoperable

Our interoperability solutions put health information at the fingertips of providers, within the EHR workflow. Providers spend less time searching for information and are granted 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 provides infrastructure to identify patients as they transition through care facilities; locate health records regardless of where care occurred; and retrieve relevant care documents in a streamlined manner.
