KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein, a private, 674-bed hospital with eight ambulatory clinics in São Paulo, will be the first in Brazil to implement Cerner Millennium ® health care information technology (HIT) solutions. The technology will help streamline operations in multiple areas of the hospital, while improving care for all patients.

Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein was the first in Latin America to receive international accreditation from the Joint Commission International.

"Albert Einstein hospital is extremely progressive in terms of quality and technology, and we look for the same characteristics in our suppliers and partners," said Dr. Claudio Lottenberg, President of Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein. "Our clinical activity is centered on the patient. By introducing Cerner's integrated technology, we will be able to deliver efficient care and increase patient safety."

With the implementation at Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein, Cerner will have clients in 24 countries. Albert Einstein will be the first client to leverage Cerner Millennium in Portuguese.

"We are excited to announce our entry into the Brazilian health IT market with this preeminent hospital," said Neal Patterson, co-founder, chairman and CEO of Cerner. "For more than three decades, Cerner has been addressing important challenges in health care with technology, knowledge and content, working with clients in 24 countries to improve efficiency, reduce costs and elevate the standard of care. It will be rewarding to partner with Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein to deploy all of our solutions for improving the health of populations. Together with Einstein, we share a mission of advancing excellence in health care and enhancing the quality of life for people and communities."

The first phase of the project will include: translation of Millennium into Portuguese, Orders, Documentation, electronic medical record (EMR), Pharmacy, Patient Management, Billing, ER, ICU, Oncology, Cardiology, Laboratory, Surgery, Ambulatory process, Medication Administration, Women's Health and various Performance Improvement and Quality Outcomes solutions among others across the main acute care facility and clinics. This project demonstrates the flexibility of the Cerner Millennium architecture to meet the language and workflow requirements of those in different countries around the world.
