MIT Medical, an ambulatory care center serving the 25,000+ members of the Massachusetts Institute Technology community has selected Cerner to implement an integrated clinical, financial and population health management system. MIT Medical serves more than 20,000 Massachusetts Institute Technology students, faculty, staff and retirees, as well as members of their families.
By implementing Cerner Millennium EHR, MIT will be able to support clinical processes and health management across its two locations in Cambridge and Lexington, Mass. Patients will benefit from a single health record accessible from a patient portal.
In addition to the Cerner Millennium EHR, MIT Medical will be implementing Cerner’s HealthelntentSM population health management platform. HealtheIntentaggregates and normalizes data from various sources in near real-time and is designed to provide clinicians with meaningful data to identify and stratify populations to locate gaps in care.
Through this process, a longitudinal record is established for individuals within a population. HealtheIntent is also engineered to engage patients beyond the hospital setting and help providers manage outcomes, aiming to improve the overall health of the community.
“The Cerner platform will allow us to house data in one integrated database that can be accessed by both our EHR and scheduling and billing platforms,” said Shelagh Joyce, MIT Medical’s director of information services in a statement. “The system will also enable us to connect electronically to other health care institutions, give our clinicians equally good access across desktop and mobile platforms and offer a more function-rich patient portal.”
