It is important for healthcare organizations to have an efficient way of managing the information that's part of a patient’s health journey and subsequently, influences reimbursement. That’s why Cerner Health Information Management (HIM) connects with the electronic health record (EHR) to allow for access to near real-time information. This connection enables organizations to monitor and support health information electronically for a comprehensive medical record. By leveraging accurate documentation through a clinically driven revenue cycle, coding staff can work toward avoiding delays, protecting against audit risk and focusing on more complex issues and strategic quality initiatives.
Our HIM solutions move the coder from a fragmented workflow in multiple systems to a seamless connection within the Cerner EHR. The Cerner coding product collaborates with industry leaders including 3M and Optum to connect their content, grouping and editing capabilities into the coding workflow.
