Image-enabled workflows across the continuum should be the standard, not the exception.
"The benefit of benefit of Cerner Camera captures multi-faceted because we've got a solution that helps us with acquiring the images in a standardized fashion, immediately having them available in the chart..."
— Dr. Nicholas J. Golda, Medical Director, University of Missouri Health Care
Over 121 years ago Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen produced the first X-ray image of his wife's hand. This famous picture comes with the story of how she reacted to image by saying, "I've seen my death!" How apropos to medical imaging today where we can visualize with great clarity the fragile human body. I often wonder if Professor Roentgen predicted the great success of his discovery. This same stream of thought then leads me to ponder if we too are sitting on one of the greatest opportunities of our time. Medical imaging modalities (X-ray, CT and MRI machines) enjoyed a rapid pace of innovation in the 19th century. The image became clearer, the radiation exposure lessened and data increased. As the software becomes smarter by self-learning (machine learning) from thousands diagnosed images, the next advancements in medical imaging is software that automatically locates and quantifies cancer. It is a very promising future for our sector of the industry if we can navigate through a big shift. As diagnostic services shift from revenue generators to cost centers, we are placed in a very contemplative state where we define how to take advantage of the payment reform to provide value to the broader health care system as it too shifts to meet the needs of the populations they serve.
Cardiovascular Imaging Management*
EHR embedded, knowledge-driven workflows that provide automated and streamlined cardiovascular functions across the continuum of care. Cerner cardiovascular solutions are designed to reducing the total cost of care through effective chronic cardiovascular disease management.
*Formally PowerChart Cardiovascular
Allows cardiologists to receive, manage, display and report on electrocardiogram (ECG) exams directly within the electronic health record (EHR); anytime, anywhere. Cerner is the first to present a consolidated view of ECG information, incorporating prior encounters, critical results and observations into the EHR.
*Formally PowerChart ECG
Cardiovascular service lines
Supports health care organizations in providing holistic, integrated, cardiovascular care of the patient across the continuum of care.
CareAware MultiMedia (CAMM)
Cerner’s Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) platform designed to manage all forms of multimedia, such as images and video and integrate them with the EHR. This ensures contextually relevant, comprehensive and timely critical information access, available at the point of care — or across the continuum of care.
Allows providers to capture images and then store them in Cerner’s CareAware MultiMedia Archive, for access within the EHR. Patient context is set at the time of the capture, and personal health information (PHI) is kept intact and secure by storing directly to the EHR and bypassing storage of images on the local devices.
Enables seamless exchanges of images and data between health care organizations, venues of care, and providers to help in diagnosing and treating patients with a comprehensive EHR. Availability of a holistic patient record aides in reducing unnecessary imaging.
Cerner SkyVue® picture archiving communications system (PACS)
Cerner SkyVue PACS provides a cohesive viewer for multiple workflows, across the continuum. It adapts to any user, viewing any image, on any device, with flexibility to build and personalize your view.
Cerner RadNet® Radiology Information System (RIS)
Cerner RadNet is designed to automate your diagnostic imaging department, streamlining operations. This provides quick access to critical data such as allergies, lab values or current medications.
Cerner RadNet® Mammography Management
Cerner RadNet® Mammography manages follow-up and tracks breast imaging procedures. This solution assists clients in achieving compliance with Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA).
Cerner Visual Desktop Integration (VDI)
Cerner’s VDI provides a visual tie in of RadNet® with non-Cerner PACS, allowing physicians to interpret, access vital clinical information, and obtain prior reports without logging into a disparate system.
