This morning during the annual Cerner Health Conference, Geisinger announced a new 10-year agreement with Cerner to expand its use of HealtheIntent population health solution as the preferred data platform across its diverse care delivery network. Building on the value created over the last three years after first announcing its use of HealtheIntent, Geisinger plans to use the platform to gain actionable insights and intelligence by bringing together data from across its system.
Extending Cerner’s Platform Across ACO and Geisinger Health Plan
Geisinger plans to extend actionable insights and intelligence from the Cerner platform across its clinical enterprise, accountable care organization (ACO) and Geisinger Health Plan. This expanded relationship will leverage open standards and integration capabilities to provide a seamless, integrated, user experience and help support care management, wellness services, population health management and consumer engagement strategies.
As health care continues to shift to value-based care for improved outcomes and lower costs, providers are increasingly turning to health network strategies to manage the health of patients across an increasingly complex and diverse technology landscape. Geisinger is taking advantage of Cerner’s robust intelligence and analytical capabilities to bring together the ever-increasing amount of data about its patients and health plan members.
Geisinger and Cerner to Form Innovation Team
As part of the 10-year deal, Geisinger and Cerner will create an aligned innovation team dedicated to the continued advancements of transformative health care solutions and new commercial capabilities, including advanced AI and machine learning.
