MU, Cerner renew commitment to improve wellness and care throughout Missouri
After nearly two decades of collaboration to shape University of Missouri Health Care into a national leader in health information technology, the University of Missouri (MU) and Cerner, a global leader in healthcare technology, announced plans to extend their relationship through 2025.
"This extension of the MU-Cerner collaboration will help us achieve iconic status among health systems for healthcare information technology and outstanding patient care outcomes," said MU Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin. "It will benefit all Missourians and beyond as we expand medical research, speed health care innovations and improve population health locally, regionally and statewide. Through this collaboration, MU has been able to achieve early success in implementing healthcare technology solutions, and we are now able to move forward with new goals to improve patient care."
In 2009, the parties formed the Tiger Institute for Health Innovation to deliver value through information technology and innovation. With this extension, the Tiger Institute will focus on key advancements in population health, research, cost-saving opportunities and becoming a key resource for health organizations around the world.
