This country is in the midst of an opioid overdose epidemic as millions of Americans struggle with pain and addiction. Recent headlines have brought this issue to the forefront and sparked a desperately needed national conversation. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, opioids killed more than 28,000 people in 2014, more than any year on record.
“We are enthusiastic to replace our diverse platforms with one system that will house collective information from virtually every component of our organization.”
— Jerry Fedele, president and CEO, Boca Raton Regional Hospital

— Matt Sena, CIO, Northern Arizona Healthcare

I believe interoperability is the ability for information used to advance patient care to move between healthcare entities, regardless of the technological platform in place.
Cerner’s open platforms, open technologies and open business approach enable innovative collaboration and the development of apps that fulfill edge needs. Our open application programming interfaces, called Cerner Ignite APIs, allow your organization to integrate apps directly into your workflows at the point of care.
