Children's 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.

            Consistent 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.

      "I 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.
