When you take on regulatory compliance in-house, you take a chance. Without Cerner as your regulatory ally, you are responsible for reading all legislation, interpreting it and understanding how it impacts you and your Cerner Millennium or Cerner Soarian system.
The sheer size and rapid-fire release of regulations are nearly impossible to keep up with. Taking the responsibility of your organization’s regulatory compliance upon yourself leaves you open to lost incentives and incurring penalties.
When you work with us, the pressure, the risk and the fear is diminished. It is the difference between someone actively pushing the information to you and you trying to digest everything.
You need an ally that understands your unique position in the industry as well as your challenges. Cerner spans the breadth of provider sizes, from critical access hospitals to organizations with hundreds of hospitals and clinics. We focus from one end of the spectrum to the other. A regulatory collaboration with us gives you the opportunity to leverage the knowledge and experience we have from working with other clients, a true best practices guide.
Regulatory changes bring broad impact to your Cerner Millennium® or Cerner Soarian system. There are intricacies around every corner that need to be navigated. No one knows our system like we do. We have the resources behind the scenes to find the answer to any question, any scenario. Without our expertise, you or another vendor has to scour for the generally available resources and piece together an understanding of the broad solution and system impact. Working without an insider only gets you so far. We understand the full scope of changes to your system, what you need to prepare for and what you can work around.
“We used Cerner’s Regulatory Compliance Consulting services to achieve successful Meaningful Use Attestations for Stage 1 and Stage 2. Navigating the constant government changes would have been extremely difficult without the help of Cerner – they were a life saver on multiple occasions.”

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act has propelled the shift already underway in healthcare- rewarding value over volume. While the legislation is significant, we believe MACRA doesn't have to be overwhelming.
