Performance Improvement

Drive improvements into the workflow

Our performance improvement solutions can assist your organization with clinical, financial and operational goals to drive improvement into the workflow. The solutions also leverage analytics, algorithms and models to empower users with intelligent data that enables them to impact care when it matters most.

Cerner’s performance improvement and clinical intelligence solutions use analytics, algorithms and models to empower users with intelligent data that enables them to impact care when it matters most. Each of our solutions provides evidence-based clinical intelligence and delivers that intelligence within the clinical workflow. A few examples of Cerner’s performance improvement and clinical intelligence suite of solutions are listed below.

Palliative Care

Cerner’s Palliative Care solution uses advanced intelligence to identify patients in need of palliative care, then facilitates a process to establish directives set forth by the patient and their personal care team to better understand the level of care and intervention needed. Unlike competitors, the solution is unique and the first of its kind in the market using electronic health record (EHR) and patient data to facilitate improved patient care.

Our Readmission Prevention decision support and clinical workflows help to manage the care process. Unlike competitors, Cerner’s Readmission Prevention solution provides near-real time visibility to patients at risk for readmission and integrates evidence-based processes into the workflow.

Cerner Sepsis Management identifies at-risk patients in near real-time using advanced clinical decision support to alert the care team and recommend the appropriate care plan within the workflow. The solution monitors patient data, searching for complex patterns, to help detect early indications of potential Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS) or the onset of sepsis.

Cerner’s Transitions of Care solution utilizes data-driven analysis to recommend the appropriate venue needed to facilitate patient success outside the acute setting and reduce the risk of readmission. The solution is the first of its kind in the industry to provide decision support connected with the electronic health record (EHR) data and offer that information in the care team’s workflow.
