Support people in continuing their care journey

Speak with one of our experts to help you get started.

The challenge: patients regressing in their health journey

Healthcare doesn’t start and stop in the acute setting. More than 40% of Medicare beneficiaries are discharged to a post-acute care venue to continue their recovery. What happens in those venues can determine the health outcomes for patients. The right tools and the right information in the hands of your care team are essential to help them provide the best care possible for patients and mitigate the risk of regressing on their health journeys.

The solution: support people in continuing their care journey

To help patients achieve the best possible health outcomes, Cerner is focused on enabling health systems like yours coordinate, manage and deliver high-quality, post-acute care. Our solutions help providers find the right venue for patients to continue their recovery, while enabling the exchange of information during transition of care.

With a more complete picture, home health, hospice, senior care, and inpatient rehabilitation clinicians can be better prepared to manage care for patients. Whether it’s identifying a person who is a fall risk, in declining health or not meeting expected recovery times, clinicians can intervene sooner and stay connected with patients and care teams throughout their recovery journeys.

The Cerner difference

Cerner helps support smooth patient transitions between venues of care by leveraging one record across acute, rehab and long-term care and through integration with our home health solution. In addition, organizations benefit by having a one-stop shop for their post-acute care technology needs.

Our integration capabilities can help provide smooth workflows for clinicians across venues; for example, providers do not have to leave the Cerner Millennium® electronic health record to sign orders requested by the post-care venues.
