MedStar Health selects Cerner to implement healthcare information technology at all its hospitals

Cerner : 24 January, 2008  (New Product)
MedStar Health, the largest health system in the Baltimore/Washington region, has selected multiple Cerner Millennium healthcare information technology (HIT) solutions to be implemented at all seven of its hospitals.
Every year MedStar Health sees more than 147,000 inpatient and one-and-a-half million outpatient visitors.

“With the high volume of patients we treat on a daily basis, information technology plays a critical role in the care delivery process,” said Catherine Szenczy, MedStar Health chief information officer. “We believe the Cerner Millennium solutions will enable us to raise the bar on the care we deliver by improving the workflow of clinicians, and supporting MedStar’s focus on delivering high quality patient care.”

The Cerner Millennium PathNet, PharmNet, PowerChart and MillenniumPOC solutions are replacing the health system’s existing HIT products. After evaluating offerings from multiple vendors, MedStar leadership chose to implement Cerner solutions because they wanted to move away from a multi-vendor best-of-breed approach to the unified Cerner Millennium system.

The Cerner Millennium architecture is an HIT computing platform that helps health professionals elevate safety, quality and efficiency. To date, Cerner has more than 7,700 live Millennium applications at more than 1,100 facilities worldwide.

The Cerner Millennium solutions will allow MedStar Health to consolidate and standardise its operations, increasing efficiency and enhancing patient safety. MedStar Health will be using Cerner Millennium solutions to automate clinician documentation, pharmacy and laboratory operations, medication administration processes, and bedside care activities.

“MedStar’s implementation of multiple Cerner Millennium solutions to achieve a more cohesive healthcare information technology strategy supports its vision of utilising technology to advance healthcare delivery,” said Trace Devanny, Cerner president. “These solutions will help improve Patient safety and clinician workflow at several junctures in the care process, including quick access to patient records, management of medication dispensing, administration processes, and automation of laboratory practices.”
