Cerner To Showcase New PowerChart(R) Solutions For 20 Physician Specialties At HIMSS13

Stocks in this article: CERN

KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cerner (Nasdaq:CERN) will showcase 20 new physician specialty and venue enhancements of its PowerChart ® electronic health record (EHR) system at the upcoming Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference and exhibition. The enhancements will be developed for Cerner's native iOS mobile solution, PowerChart Touch , to provide personalized, intuitive and relevant clinical workflows that equip the physician with the right information at the point of care.

"Physicians are not one generic group. Each specialty has individualized options in their workflows and needs for treating a patient. By tailoring workflows to each specialty, Cerner will equip each physician with the information they need at their fingertips," said Dr. Jeff Wall, OB/GYN, physician executive, Cerner.

PowerChart Touch combines the enhancements created for the desktop with the power of mobility. With a swipe of a finger, providers can quickly and easily navigate workflows. Built on the Millennium+™ platform, enhancements and new capabilities are available on-demand versus relying on major release schedules. This allows client organizations, departments and individual users to more quickly adapt to new capabilities, regulatory mandates and quality measurements.

PowerChart ® Touch solutions create a customized user experience that is:

  • Fast: instantaneous response leveraging information in the cloud
  • Easy: intuitive interaction with minimal training and configuration required
  • Smart: recommendations based on diagnosis and past medical history.

"We are creating an experience that allows physicians to focus on what they do best, providing high quality care for their patients," said Steve Eckman, senior vice president, Cerner. "These enhancements were driven by direct client feedback, with physician needs as the paramount consideration. By partnering with our clients, we're building solutions that are tailored to each physician specialty."

Stop by Cerner's booth (#4941) at HIMSS for a hands-on demonstration of all 20 PowerChart desktop specializations and PowerChart Touch iPad applications, including primary care, internal medicine, ED, pediatrics, surgery, orthopaedics, women's health, cardiology, oncology, ENT, anesthesiology, vascular surgery, gastroenterology, intensivist, urology, neurology, neurosurgery, cardiothoracic surgery, nephrology, and ophthalmology.
