PERRY COUNTY MEMORIAL HOSPITAL SELECTS CERNER COMMUNITYWORKS?

Perry County Memorial Hospital (PCMH) has selected Cerner, a global leader in health care technology, to implement an integrated electronic health record (EHR) across its acute and ambulatory facilities.

 "At PCMH, we live by our motto, ‘People Care More Here.’ We have seen that Cerner shares in this sentiment, caring for and understanding the health care needs of our community,” said Chris Wibbenmeyer, Vice President of Operations, PCMH. "Cerner’s integrated system and dedication to interoperability within PCMH and beyond made it clear that they were the preferred choice for our organization and our patients.”

 PCMH will transition to the Cerner Millennium® EHR, a health care IT platform designed to support an individual’s care journey across the continuum – from the doctor’s office to the hospital and outpatient clinics – with consistent patient engagement. Cerner Millennium will provide PCMH physicians with a digital record of their patients’ health history, including clinical and financial data. Through the new online patient portal, patients will be able to securely message physicians, schedule appointments, view and settle balances and access their health history.

 “Cerner is excited to support the health of Perry County by implementing IT solutions designed to make health care more approachable for the PCMH community,” said Zane Burke, President, Cerner. “Our integrated EHR powers the efficient exchange of health information across care settings to provide clinicians with the right information about the right individual at the right time.”

 The Cerner CommunityWorks? cloud-based deployment model will provide PCMH with an integrated EHR to help physicians continue to provide high-quality care to the residents of Perry County. This deployment model tailors Cerner Millennium to support the unique needs of community health care organizations.

 “PCMH continues to provide for the health and wellness of their community with excellent health care close to home,” said Michael Farrell, Vice President, CommunityWorks?, Cerner. “With the added support and technology from Cerner, PCMH will be better positioned to advance the health of Perry County and respond to the evolving health care needs of the people they serve.”
