Children’s National Health System, an international leader in pediatric health and Cerner has expanded their relationship to integrate Millennium Revenue Cycle™ with the existing Cerner EHR and scheduling platform across the 313-bed pediatric hospital and more than 50 outpatient facilities. Children’s National and Cerner began working together in 2005 with the implementation of the Cerner Millennium® EHR and entered into a multi-year strategic alignment with Cerner to establish The Bear Institute, the first pediatric health IT institute in September 2013.
Cerner’s Clinically Driven Revenue Cycle™ is designed to support clinicians and staff to update the billing, collection and analytics processes throughout the patient’s visit, enhance clinical documentation to help improve reimbursement and limit claims errors. Patients will benefit from the streamlined financial experience, including visibility of their financial liability from a single source.
“We’re pleased with the success our relationship with Cerner has produced, and we’re confident these expanded offerings will continue to support our organization,” said Dr. Brian Jacobs, vice president, CMIO and CIO, Children’s National. “Incorporating financial data with our clinical systems, all on the same platform, makes sense and provides an integrated billing, analytics and decision support experience.”
