Providing the framework to support a person throughout each phase of their health and care journey.
Cerner recognizes the digitization of health care requires improved focus around care coordination and communication, as well as support, empowerment and access to promote patient-centered care.
Health care is quickly becoming a value-driven industry, and not just because of regulatory and reimbursement changes that stress the delivery of lower-cost, higher-quality care. Consumer expectations are also evolving rapidly, spurred by increasing out-of-pocket financial responsibilities and a greater reliance on convenient, accessible technologies that have permeated all aspects of life.
"I've seen more positive changes in the last year than I have seen in the last five years combined. I feel like this is a true partnership, and Cerner is embedded here at Genesis and is clearly part of the organization."
— Kevin Cahill, Director of Pharmacy, Genesis Health System
Over the next ten years, the business of health care will change significantly. The last decade has been focused on the digitization of workflows, which has created an opening for new advancements in health care. Technology enablers like telehealth, cloud, block chain and the Internet of Things (IoT), juxtaposed with the need for clinicians to improve health outcomes and drive personal accountability in health care, creates an industry ripe for consumer transformation.
"The patient portal's been the most important improvement in our ability to deliver care to patients since I’ve been at Virginia Mason."
— Keith Dipboye, Associate Director of Medical Informatics, Virginia Mason
Last month, Virginia Mason Medical Center (VMMC) topped 100,000 patient portal users. The growth is rapid; in less than five months, the Seattle health system added 6,000 patients to its portal.
