Hospital of Michigan entered the age of information this year by
adding the DMC wide Clinical Information System.
KANSAS CITY, MO and DETROIT, MI -
AUGUST 25,1999 - Cerner Corporation (NASDAQ: CERN) and the Detroit
Medical Center (DMC) today
announced that Children's Hospital of Michigan, one of the largest
pediatric health care facilities in the United States, has
implemented Cerner's Health Network Architecture (HNA) Millennium
software in its ongoing commitment to improving patient care
throughout the communities it serves.
with Cerner's mission, the DMC is making the right information
available to the right person at the right time. Through use of
Cerner's PowerChart, RadNet, CareNet Orders and Documentation
Management, Open Engine, and Open Clinical Foundation, the DMC is
advancing patient care delivery in multiple ways. Most importantly,
the DMC is building a clinical data repository that will allow easy
access to patient information by clinicians from anywhere in the
system. And soon, physicians will even be able to access this data
from a remote site, such as their home or office. Also, by virtue of
HNA Millennium's integrated approach, the DMC is standardizing care
delivery through the use of standard order sets, consistent
documentation, and clinical alerts.
am now free from 'chart jail,' where I must be in proximity of a
chart to implement a care plan. Remote access to data and orders
allows me to change the trajectory of patient care from wherever I
sit," said Paul Sobotka, M.D., Vice-Chairman, Department of
Medicine at the DMC.
