Fifteen months after Cerner announced a strategic 10-year partnership with Intermountain Healthcare the companies have just implemented iCentra, a new EHR, practice management and revenue cycle system designed to increase the quality of patient care, while optimizing costs. The system has rolled out at two Intermountain hospitals and 24 Intermountain ambulatory care facilities, and will continue to roll out across the network over the coming months.
This new, integrated approach to electronic patient health and health-system management underscores how industry-leading partners with a shared vision can collaborate to create and implement powerful health IT solutions.
In addition to partnering with Cerner to envision and implement an innovative new data-management system in their care locations, Intermountain Healthcare is also engaged with the Leidos Partnership for Defense Health. Stan Huff, chief medical informatics officer for Intermountain, is a member of the Partnership’s Clinical Advisory Council, and has worked closely with Cerner on formalizing and overseeing their own strategic alliance.
About Intermountain’s involvement with the Leidos Partnership with Defense Health, Huff said in September 2014, “Intermountain is honored to share our deep knowledge of clinical systems architecture and workflow with Cerner as we work jointly toward the Leidos Partnership’s delivery of this critical update to our military’s healthcare management system.
