We believe Cerner’s solutions will help us achieve these goals.”
As part of the new agreement, Sarah Bush Lincoln will leverage Cerner’s HealtheIntent™ population health management platform, a system that can analyze patient data from multiple sources and identify health trends, regardless of EHR supplier.
“Cerner’s HealtheIntent platform will help enable physicians and mid-level providers to use meaningful data to predict what will happen within the community, so they can manage toward improving the care of their population,” Zane Burke, president, Cerner, said. “Enabling medical staff and patients to engage in their health and care delivery will enable Sarah Bush Lincoln to propel itself toward its goal of driving better outcomes and providing an even deeper level of continuity of care.”
