KANSAS CITY, Mo. and COLUMBIA, Tenn., March 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Maury Regional Health has selected Cerner, a global leader in health care technology, to implement an enterprisewide electronic health record (EHR) system across its three hospitals and more than 25 outpatient facilities. The Cerner system will displace MEDITECH® in the hospital setting and NextGen® Healthcare in the ambulatory facilities.  

This year, the health system’s 255-bed Maury Regional Medical Center, the largest medical center between Nashville and Huntsville, was ranked No. 1 in Tennessee by CareChex® for overall hospital care in the area of medical excellence.

“Cerner will provide our organization with enhanced capabilities that will be beneficial for providers and patients,” said Maury Regional Health CEO Alan Watson. “We are excited to unveil Cerner’s integrated health IT platform that will support our care teams across the continuum and unleash the potential of sophisticated functionality.”

The Cerner Millennium® EHR and integrated revenue cycle management solutions combine clinical and financial information within a single platform. This results in a Clinically Driven Revenue Cycle™ designed to help clinicians and staff update the billing process throughout the patient’s visit, enhance clinical documentation to help improve reimbursement and limit claims errors.

The agreement also includes Cerner Transaction Services, a suite of core services that helps reduce traditional bolt-on solutions. The services provide recommended practice workflows across Cerner revenue cycle management solutions to prevent redundant tasks and manage manual intervention. Through its remote-hosting offering, Cerner will manage and support Maury Regional’s EHR and deliver clinical data from its Kansas City-based data center.

“Maury Regional is in a highly competitive and consolidating health care market, and we are proud to provide a robust platform that will support the organization as its leadership works toward continued accomplishments, independence and market strength,” said Cerner President Zane Burke. “Together, we’ll establish more connected health system that places the person at the center of the care journey.”
