How are devices validated for CareAware iBus?

When CareAware® was launched in 2007, medical device connectivity was a new endeavor for health care organizations, technology companies and device manufacturers. Years later, Cerner and our clients have gone beyond connectivity to request devices perform in the context of a clinical workflow. Cerner’s CareAware Validation program is an active approach to member relationships across development, sales, marketing, and support. The program is focused on connecting devices to our CareAware iBus® as well as providing an additional layer of assurance that the device performs in the context of a specific workflow.
