Cerner Corp. and Intermountain Healthcare Announce the Implementation of iCentra at Two Intermountain Hospitals and 24 Clinics Across Northern Utah
Mar 19 15
Cerner Corp. and Intermountain Healthcare announced the implementation of iCentra, a model electronic health record (EHR), practice management and revenue cycle system, at two Intermountain hospitals and 24 clinics across northern Utah. Intermountain will use a regional deployment strategy to bring all acute care facilities, ambulatory clinics, affiliated practices and business offices live on iCentra in 2015 and 2016. The iCentra implementation began Feb. 21 at Logan Regional and Bear River Valley hospitals and surrounding Intermountain clinics throughout Box Elder and Cache counties. iCentra was implemented 15 months after Cerner and Intermountain announced their multi-year strategic partnership. Cerner's open architecture and edge development models for innovation, paired with Intermountain's best practice standards and focus on quality improvement, enabled the implementation. iCentra integrated Intermountain's industry-recognized Care Process Models, which includes evidence-based best practice guidelines and workflow tools that blend the guidelines into care delivery as a shared baseline. These decision support tools help health care organizations identify and track medical costs, services, and outcomes specific to a care process. Teams used agile development principles to design and configure the system in six-week cycles while both companies added intellectual property that makes iCentra more unique than other fully integrated EHR systems in the market. This methodology differentiates iCentra from other implementations by creating an environment and operational structure for continuous improvement beyond the first go-live so that once the implementation is complete across all hospitals and systems, iCentra will become a true learning environment. This includes multifaceted teams of super users, physician coaches, informaticists, and clinical leadership. As part of their multi-year strategic partnership, Cerner and Intermountain will continue to work with physicians, clinicians, and business teams to improve iCentra. The work is designed to enable future innovations around activity-based costing and improve the patient room of the future.
Washington Department of Social and Health Services Implements Cerner as Part of Patient Safety Emphasis, ICD-10 Preparation
Mar 18 15
The State of Washington Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) has selected Cerner Corp. to modernize integrated revenue cycle and electronic health records (EHRs) in multiple state facilities to prepare for ICD-10 compliance. The agreement will digitize DSHS' paper health records to improve provider access to patient information among facilities and provide tools to support DSHS' objective to improve patient safety. In addition to improved access to information, DSHS will implement computerized physician order entry (CPOE) as part of its focus on patient safety. A 2014 report in Perspectives in Health Information Managements states CPOE adoption can facilitate the reduction of medical errors as well as create cost savings in hospitals. Cerner will implement Millennium PowerChart and the revenue cycle suite of solutions at three accredited psychiatric hospitals, including Western State Hospital, Eastern State Hospital and Child Studies and Treatment Center. Cerner will replace the billing functionality supported by the Residential Programs System (RPS), as well as the central pharmacy system.
