Cerner expands EHR across Dignity Health enterprise
Cerner, a global leader in health care technology, and Dignity Health, one of the nation’s largest health care systems and the largest hospital provider in California, have entered into an extended agreement to expand the use of Cerner’s PowerChart Ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) across all Dignity Health ambulatory care clinics, which will create a unified patient record and an integrated clinically driven network across all acute and ambulatory care settings.
PowerChart Ambulatory will integrate with Dignity Health’s 39 acute care facilities, which are supported by Cerner Millennium EHR. As a result, patients and providers will benefit from a one-record experience. In this environment, patients will have access to a single patient portal and will no longer have to recall medical history during appointments, while physicians will benefit from strengthened data integrity and a holistic view of a patient’s record.
