"Cerner Review"

What do you like best?

It is very well integration amongst its suite of solutions. It supports best practice we have the tools incorporated that are benchmark tools and can be used for reporting. There is the ability to extract data from the system for reporting

What do you dislike?

Very customizable and can often lead users into a Rabbit Hole when doing design work. you need to have detailed workflow and process plans prior to beginning design work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The solution works for big and small implementations. The Cerner M-Pages have really improved physician documentation and quick order entry. The new dashboards are very informative and cater to specific practices and work areas. The ability to move freely from one solution to the next is wonderful and enable users to leverage all the benefits of one patient one record had to show

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Healthcare: Order Entry, Allergies tracking safe medication administration streamlined documentation for all levels of care

"EMR"

What do you like best?

I was part of the team that developed the notes we are using on our Cerner EMR in the hospital. The Cerner reps were very helpful in the build process and integrating our needs and adapting some of our paper documents into the actual EMR.

What do you dislike?

Some of the work arounds are not easily identifiable, some seemingly simple things are sometimes mad too complicated. When some problems have been identified and submitted for solutions to Cerner we are told there is no way to fix a given problem but other Cerner users have shared fixes in other forums.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In considering adoption of Cerner one should make sure you will be getting input into the design of your daily EMR forms and the support to change your documents later on.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

None

What Medical Practice Management solution do you use?

"It's just ok"

What do you like best?

The easiest thing to do on Cerner is put orders in, but that's about it. I wish I could say I like more about it but everything is equal to or worse than Epic charting so it is hard to come up with something I really like about it.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that nothing seems to populate as you chart. Everything is in a drop down menu or you have to select it and move to another box. It's also very boring to look at compared to Epic, everything is bland black and white, whereas in Epic you can personalize it. I also find it hard to locate different areas to chart certain things. It isn't very user friendly. In Epic you can just push buttons to select and partially type someones name in, whereas in Cerner you have to pick everything from a drop down menu and you have to know everyones full name.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think Epic is worth the money, unless you have someone who can setup Cerner to be functional within your company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows me to chart, but I don't think it is really solving any problems. Cerner provides a service to healthcare workers, but it doesn't really go above and beyond to help make my work easier. I think a lot of people would agree that it serves a purpose, but it isn't really providing anything new that we can't get from a different charting system.

"Fairly user friendly when compared to other EHRs"

What do you like best?

My favorite feature of the Cerner Powerchart EHR is both the PowerPlans and the CORES feature which is a helpful handoff tool for concise patient summaries and plans. I think it is overall a very user friendly EHR compared to other EHRs I've used on the inpatient medicine setting. The Powerplans are a great time saver. The ability to create quick text as templates also saves important time. I like the ability to view the results review in multiple different views as well as in a graph form.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the Discharge tab within the physician view. I also dislike the Outside medical systems tab that is often slow and has incomplete data. It's also not always clear how to best customize the view that you want of your left sidebar menu options.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Another thing I like about Cerner Powerchart is its ability to communicate with our outpatient patient medical records and that labs ordered as an outpatient automatically flow into the results within the inpatient EHR. We have solved the issue of retriving records from all other medical systems, although some medical systems do not communicate with the Cerner Powerchart EHR. It has also streamlined our signout process by having a standardized template for the physician handoff report through the CORES functionality.

"EMR/EHR software from Cerner Corp."

What do you like best?

Clinical Data such as vitals etc are presented in easily identifiable sections. Its fairly flexible and and once accustomed to it is relatively efficient when used. The learning period involved can be lengthy to achieve full proficiency. At least all health records are in one easily accessed place.

What do you dislike?

Fairly cumbersome. Multiple clicks to find a certain end outcome, also when some function is unfamiliar to the user its not very intuitive or easy to figure out. EMR software suffers from feeling as if software engineers have been the sole designers and little input from clinical caregivers has been taken into account. Cerner is afflicted by this as well. Feels antiquated needs to be streamlined.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Improve intuitiveness. Still too cumbersome. Updates required in all avenues to make it a first tier choice. Its currently used not out choice but of no other option at a certain institution. This can change if the next iteration is significantly improved. Other EMR/EHR software should be considered including Epic systems. Ultimately Cerner can be a solution that works but a full analysis of other options would be highly advised before making a selection.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Patientcare and documentation all in one package sorting out health care decision management and legal requirements. There are several EHR/EMR packages available, this is a major player. Another is Epic and it has surpassed cerner in several ways and has become the go to choice at many institutions, however Epic has also had its long list of major issues.

"More work"

What do you like best?

I like that it is an organized platform.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that compared to other electronic health charting databases, there's more work attributed for staff who already have a great workload. Five clicks to complete a task in Cerner is the equivalent to complete a task in something, such as Epic. I also dislike that it's very slow to start up, as well as during use. The entire program just seems like it needs to be from another decade.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go with Epic. Yes, Cerner may be more cost effective, but your employees will appreciate Epic more because time is saved.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Cerner, medical issues are being solved, as it helps to see the position a patient is in. Data is collected and we are able to tell an improvement in status or a decline. Also, legal issues are being taken care of, as everything charted into this becomes a legal document/ record of a patient's stay. This also gives a detailed record of their stay.

"Overall a great EHR System"

What do you like best?

Decision support and reporting surpasses other EHRs. It's also very customizable, unlike other EHRs.

What do you dislike?

Too many icons on the toolbar; often have to search for icons. There are also too many ways to do the same thing in the system. Also, the requirement to refresh after doing everything is an extra click and takes unnecessary time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not skimp on education and go-live support when implementing this EHR.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

IPOCs are easily customizable and allow for regulatory bodies to easily see the plan of care for multiple disciplines in one location in the EHR. eQC allows for abstraction of quality measures directly in the EMR vs. in a third-party abstraction system.

"Cerner is as Cerner does"

What do you like best?

Cerner's solutions work well when they are well-designed and stable. Their solutions tend to have a lot of flexibility for how to get the job done and many features that are not obvious at first glance but may be accessed by more experienced users. Their solutions are built to facilitate efficiency and accuracy in many cases as well.

What do you dislike?

A lot of the features included on their newly designed mPages do not provide additional functionality and end up confusing the clinicians using it. In addition, the workflows for clinical staff (MAs, RNs) tend to be much more cumbersome than those used by physicians, which is disappointing and frustrating. It is a constant challenge to figure out what some of the alert notifications mean along with other imbedded instructions or labels across the applications. Some of the labels make sense and are familiar to clinicians from their medical practice but others are a mystery to end users without going back to cerner for clarification.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The product requires a lot of front-loaded time and effort to help users understand how to get through their work, but this is often rewarded in the long run by increased flexibility (over other EMR products).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our corporation is using Cerner products to help standardize care, to meet the requirements of Meaningful Use laws governing the use of electronic medical records, and to share patient medical records across the enterprise for better communication between care teams.

"A new but rewarding experience."

What do you like best?

What I like best about Cerner is the very detail oriented software. I use many programs within Cerner on a daily basis and they are so easy to use. We used meditech at my employer prior to using Cerner and it was much more cluttered. Cerner is easy to use, and I love the AppBar which puts every program I use under one toolbar. I find it to be very organized. I also feel confident that Cerner is a program that can withstand the privacy restrictions associated with working in the medical field. It just feels so secure.

What do you dislike?

So far, there is nothing I dislike about Cerner. The very only thing that bothers me is that you must sign in each and every time you need to use a different program within cerner. For example, if I need to use PowerChart, I sign in. If I need to switch to RCI revenue cycle for a different task, I have to sign in again. It can sometimes be daunting when I need to move quickly and switch programs. That is such a minute issue because once I have signed in to each program, I simply stay logged in and switch amongst them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly suggest it. My favorite thing is that each Cerner program can be viewed under one folder in your computer. I helped to set our staff up with the proper access for their roles in the hospital. I had never used Cerner before, yet had the easiest time learning and helping with the GoLive process. I am very pleased.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I believe that we are solving problems of being unorganized. Cerner allows a lot more detail to be displayed per patient and that is a great thing. I like how in PowerChart, you can build patient lists and it tabs each department in the hospital. It is so easy to use and this increases our productivity because we can work more quickly and efficiently.

"Cerner is GREAT! "

What do you like best?

I like that Cerner is fairly easy to navigate around once you get use to it. When charting patients vital signs it is easy to tab over to the next section without having to leave the keyboard, which makes it convenient due to the tremendous amount of information needed to be inputed per patient.

What do you dislike?

While it takes some time to get use to using Cerner, there are many different pages and tabs to navigate around. Also, sometimes the same information can be found in multiple areas which can get confusing because sometimes they do not match (due to being in different sections).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have not encountered any business problems while using Cerner. I have noticed many benefits since we have changed users. Easier access to patient charts and being able to find information needed as well as organization.

"Using this EMR is painful and adds hours onto my work week"

What do you like best?

The customer support workers are helpful and knowledgable

What do you dislike?

Most elements of the platform. It is cumbersome and slows me down. It is difficult to find clinical data in a timely manner. The default fonts are tiny and the entire user interface is so crowded that it the useful work space is smooshed into the small area in the center of the screen. There are too many clicks needed to enter simple information. Too much navigation needed to compose a simplenote

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd pick Epic or another EMR

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using it as required to complete my clinical documentation. I have realized that the potential for better products is immense. Unfortunately products such as this fall short of expectations and require better design and incorporation of feedback from end users.

"Cerner Millennium "

What do you like best?

Great program used in most hospitals in my city. Very user friendly and prices a seamless medication administration process. Great for allowing data synchronization from all hospital sites to streamline information on the electronic health record and provide all health care providers access to all diagnostic procedures and medical encounters for a patient.

What do you dislike?

Specific to our facility, nursing and allied staff still have document on paper as opposed to physicians who have access to online documentation. Hopefully this will roll out in the next couple years.

Recommendations to others considering the product

None

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Not sure how this would apply to our field as we aren't in the business area. But in terms of medication administration, the use of HUGO (closed circuit med process where we scan the patrons arm band, then scan the medication which has to match the patient profile, specific medication and medication administration time) this mitigates medication errors significantly.

"Solutions for patient information, real time and instantly. HIPAA secure!"

What do you like best?

Patient portal and education: Integrates with the EHR and their longitudinal record. The patient portal allows members to communicate with providers through secure messaging to book or change appointments, view clinical information, request refills, update information and send files.

Patient Education: Accredited, evidence-based data supplemented by best practice guidelines and standards of care from leading medical associations is provided within the EHR for physicians.

What do you dislike?

Dragon Voice Recognition in the EHR does a poor job with speech recognition.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Company wide view of clinical information to coordinate patient care and document the point at which it was delivered in both acute inpatient and outpatient settings. It helps providers have access to the right information within the clinical workflows to make the best possible decisions.

"Cerner Ambulatory and PowerChart"

What do you like best?

I mange the PowerChart Touch users and devices, this system is not 100%, but it seems to get the job done for our physicians. I love that they have the ability to dictate through an iPad and that I have the ability to manage the devices that this is all happening from.

What do you dislike?

In PowerChart data does flow to the PowerChart Touch application and vice versa. This is a pain for our providers and our support staff when troubleshooting what the issues are. Trying to explain that only certain things can be transferred over sometimes is not ideal.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's better than Siemens ESOAR. Providers like it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability for providers to dictate on an iPad or iPhone makes mobility and efficiency easy.

"Cerner Review"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of the applications bar to get information entered into our data system quickly.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that the applications from the app bar where updated awhile back and it is hard to find which application to use if you don't know the exact picture or name. Also cerner's helpdesk call line hasn't been the quickest or most knowledgeable about cerner issues when I have called in the past. Furthermore, I dislike how certain tests in cerner are not the same names or even an orderable test in the nursing staffs ordering system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Some problems we are solving are needing to manually fax patients results to physcians. This is resolved by entering in the fax number when ordering a test, and it is in the system to fax at a later time, or it can be fax via ad hoc fax to a specific number, saving on paper, and time.

"Cerner EHR for Resident Physicians"

What do you like best?

Cerner Powerchart is well organized and neatly displayed. The ability to see a screenshot of Vitals, Progress Notes, and Labs/Imaging are the highlight of Powerchart.

What do you dislike?

Some features are difficult to find such as patients bowel movements, I/Os and vitals in last 24 hrs vs since midnight, and the inability to fully customize progress notes (e.g. Last 3 or 5 sodium levels - really can only do this for glucose levels). Old labs are difficult to find and cant be manually searched (e.g. If i want to find "creatinine" I cant type it out to find it, I have to look for the Cr column to see all the Cr levels). Many times I am clicking about 5-7 times to get to where I want..

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please check out Epic EHR before fully committing to Cerner PowerChart.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am attempting to efficiently and effectively treat patients with the help of a EHR to document patients problems and plan of management.

"Great product for our hospital"

What do you like best?

I have been working with Cerner Scheduling and Registration for the past 15 years and Capacity Management for the past 4-5 years. The applications have come a long way and they have improved immensely. I enjoy teaching our staff how to use it and finding the best way for each clinic to customize the application to meet their needs.

What do you dislike?

It takes a long time to get enhancements.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are no perfect systems. As far as this one goes, it is a great product and headed in the right direction for growth and change.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are so many more products that we currently do not have but could benefit in using. I have realized that the different products work well together and that they can be used in many different ways in order to adapt to the needs of the clinical areas.

"Cerner Practice Management helps tremendously!"

What do you like best?

Cerner Practice Management has many services that meet my needs perfectly. The service focuses on registration, scheduling, patient tracking and reporting. The service is quick and easy to understand. All you need is in one place. You do not have to switch between services. Cerner Practice Management is all you need.

What do you dislike?

I have difficulty finding one thing I dislike about the service. One thing I would change is have additional tutorials included with the service to help better navigate the system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend an increase in tutorials for when a company first begins to use the program to help gain a better understanding of the program. In addition, I would increase marketing techniques, given I did not hear about this service for at least two years.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cerner Practice Management solves several problems such as getting the company well organizes with better communication between employees and our patients.

"Not my first choice but a good choice"

What do you like best?

Easy to find what you need. Can review the past charting with easy. Able to scan medications easily.

What do you dislike?

If I chart at the wrong time, I have to go into every cell and delete. Cannot delete entire row at one time. Cannot change time once submitted.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a good canidate when considering EMR. Easy to use, easy to input orders, and most of all easy to find what you are looking for!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This system was being used at a community hospital for EMR. It was hard to use at first but after a few log ins was friendly. I can compare my findings to the previous shifts easily.

"Cerner: PeopleSoft"

What do you like best?

Cerner allows us to have our item master at our fingertips and provides higher visibility for our customers.

What do you dislike?

PeopleSoft is web based, so if our network is down, so is our procurement system. It can be confusing at times to know where to go to find orders and items.

"The Cerner Practice Management Software Review"

What do you like best?

What I like best about Cerner Practice Management Software is that there are a lot and plentiful of modules and components that come along with the application. There seems to be a lot of different things that a user can do with the application, so the choices are there for you to grasp.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about Cerner Practice Management Software is that there are a lot and plentiful of modules and components that come along with the application. There seems to be a lot of different things that a user can do with the application, so the choices can be overwhelming for you and your organization and enterprise. There are most likely more things that you will actually need, so it just becomes fluff.

Recommendations to others considering the product

What I would recommend to others considering Cerner Practice Management software is to do your homework before you pull the trigger and sign a long contract with this company. You may end up regretting your decision, unless of course a member or members of your senior management team is receiving some type of kickback from the company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems that we are solving with Cerner Practice Management software are unique to our business organization and enterprise and probably will most likely not apply to other businesses and organizations or enterprises, unless they are also in the healthcare industry like ourselves. The benefits that we have realized with Cerner Practice Management software is that there are a lot of functions in its modules and components. Refer back to "What do you like best?" section.

"Unstable and cumbersome program."

What do you like best?

Not much. There was some integration, but it required so much clicking around. I was fortunate to find workarounds from a previous position in another department. I only used this briefly. Being trained was complicated because I was shown too many ways to do the same thing. I never saw a positive aspect in the short amount of time that I used it.

What do you dislike?

Too many ways to do the same process leads to training difficulties. One mistake makes troubleshooting challenging. Unstable in that multiple reboots were required. When other Clinics were transitioned, I saw chaos. My personal medical safety was at risk during GoLive. Though a Cerner rep was there, they admitted to one hour of training. I have participated in a very successful GoLive from another vendor. Though it was not perfect, the staff felt supported and exceptional vendor technical assistance was available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don’t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Supposed “integration” with hospital. At the time I used this product, I saw little to no benefits. Some of the issue was training without a written manual; but the majority was the need for dual monitors and multiple applications open to perform simple tasks. I have used many Cerner applications and the lack of stability has also been an issue.

"Cerner use as a Registered Nurse"

What do you like best?

Very straight forward interface, multiple ways to customize what you see and very intuitive interface.

What do you dislike?

There is much duplication when it comes to charting. Duplicating charting is a must at times and it can be tedious with Cerner.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a valuable system that lets you input patient information that is critical to the continuity of care. It is much more streamlined than paper charting and helps remind health care providers what to chart on and makes it easy to find patient history. It feels good to be using software created right here in Kansas City and I recommend it to anyone in the health care industry. I use it daily at my job as a registered nurse in the ICU and it is priceless.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It keeps patient data confidential and safe, it makes charting a breeze

"mediocre EMR"

What do you like best?

i like that the ambulatory view is easy to read when you are just looking at one doctor.

What do you dislike?

A lot... I have used centricity in the past and found that to be a superior product. Cerner is too jumbled and has too many bugs to function the way it should. causes a lot of errors we cannot really afford. Also difficult to search through documents in a patient's chart.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Unfortunately the office i work at utilizes the cheapest version of Cerner available. I am told from others who have the full version that it is easier to use and has less bugs. We will have the full version in the next 6 months or so, so my opinion may change

"Cerner Management"

What do you like best?

I like how super easy the program is to use and navigate. I use this system for scheduling, updating patient demographics and viewing patients charts and records.

What do you dislike?

I dislike updates and the downtime during this. It seems that there is a lot of updates with this system which affects our productivity.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is very easy to use and Cerner is able to customize the program to your business. They do have a lot of updates which is unfortunate during the day because it affects productivity for your business. But they do try to do a lot of updates in the evenings as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it to register our customers and update their demographic information. We also use the system to schedule appointments for our patients and view their charts and medical records which helps me obtain prior authorizations.

"Cerner Software for Nursing"

What do you like best?

I liked that Cerner was able to be customized in so many ways by IT professionals and they were able to provide video tutorials when a new feature or customization was going to be rolled out for staff to utilize while working at the facility.

What do you dislike?

I disliked that Cerner was not very user friendly and often times it took asking another employee or group of employees to figure out where to find something in order to properly document on it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend that nursing staff and other medical professional utilize Cerner, not just IT professionals. At the end of the day, the medical professional staff has to use this day in and out, it needs to be user friendly and make sense to those using it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cerner was utilized to help solve physician and medical professional documenting and to keep all medical professional notes in one area.

I realized that a timeline of patient care from the moment they arrived at the hospital to the point of discharge was within in each patient chart.

"The ups and downs of cerner "

What do you like best?

I love how much infor you are able to put in as well as how organized it is. I was able to look at my patients demographics, med list, and much more in a timely manner while in the room with them. It was also easy to get their complaint or reason for visit easily.

What do you dislike?

I disliked how disconnected the lab results were from the normal program to were you have to keep checking back to see if the Doctor or PA had signed off on said labs. The front office and scheduling system seemee disconnected as well. I continuously have to refresh my screen waiting to see if my patient had signed in. On occasion the front desk would show a patient checked in but it would not show on our end. That portion of the system could be integrated better to work mor efficiently. Our office all agreed this was not a program that was easy to train anyone on.

Recommendations to others considering the product

None

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to scan in paperwork easier, view labs easier, follow dates of med refills and pharmacy much easier.

"Redundant"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of learning how to use the software

What do you dislike?

The redundancy of the charting, you have to chart the same thing over and over

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just to learn the ins and outs of what exactly needs to be charted so you aren’t wasting time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is a more reliable way to chart unlike paper charting. There are options and you are able to use the various options they provide while also being able to write a comment to explain your thoughts. This helps when you can’t wait to decide what to describe or how to describe it.

What do you like best?

I like that you can really customize the program.

What do you dislike?

There are many things that i dislike, but the biggest concern I have is the fact that there seems to be multiple ways to carry out the same task. This leads to people being on different pages and sometimes things getting lost in the shuffle.

"Easy to use, but the system crashes often "

What do you like best?

I worked in an emergency department transcribing electronic medical records. The Cerner software we used in the ED made my job much easier by offering pre completed templates as well as allowing me to save "macros". I also found it useful that the templates were mostly pre completed with insert points, and there was the option to edit the templates as well. I also appreciate that diagnostic imaging and labs will auto-populate into the chart just with a few clicks.

What do you dislike?

The system crashes frequently and there is no back up offered during this "down time". It would be nice to have a back up system when the software crashes. Being in an ER setting, when patient's names and records are not crossing over, this is a huge problem and really interferes with work flow.

"Cerner Review"

What do you like best?

Cerner allows you quickly switch between multiple patients when charting.

What do you dislike?

Although you can quickly switch between patients, it is visually difficult to keep track of them. The colored bars for each patient at the top change but otherwise the screen looks the same, making it easy to chart for the wrong patient when in a hurry. Additionally, to open imaging, a new window needs to be opened and this frequently takes quite a long time to load, slowing down workflow. The system lags frequently and seems to have a new glitch every day. I have had the system quit on me multiple times causing me to lose any unsaved documentation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The multiple inputs between nurses scribes and providers allows for a better defined workflow.

"Cerner as EMR program"

What do you like best?

I've never documented with any electronic medical record system other than Cerner, so I don't really have anything to compare it to. I know many nurses/healthcare professionals complain about the (dis)organization of the setup of the program/categories/etc., but compared to paper charting I have to appreciate even just the existence of EMR programs in general. It is much safer, more reliable, easier to organize, and easier to collaborate with multiple types of care providers for the same patient (physicians, respiratory therapists, techs, PT/OT, etc.) when all of the documentation for the same patient is able to be viewed in one place by all care providers from any location in the hospital (since it's online, not in paper form).

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the organization/categorization of the different assessments, systems, etc. seem like they could be organized in a more sensible fashion (although what that would be I'm not exactly sure). Also sometime you're required to put an answer/entry when you should have the option of leaving it blank, or sometimes default settings don't see to be the best option for a "default."

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Again, the safety and accessibility of Cerner/an EMR far exceeds that of paper charting. While there are/will always be complaints about Cerner/EMR programs, and there will always be room for improvement, I am happy with the software/programs that are available right now.

"Cerner - not the best EMR but far from the worst "

What do you like best?

Surginet module for PACU nursing.

Easily retrievable data from previous encounters.

Periop tracking board features.

What do you dislike?

Not keyboard friendly when documenting in iView flowsheets. Requires too many clicks and saves when moving through flowsheets and slows down proficient providers who are keyboard savvy.

Chart finalization process should be a pop out window that is clear and concise.

Overall interface is very flat and key items aren't readily visible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently utilized as the EMR at place of employment. Enterprise wide usage of the same EMR promotes ease of access of records.

"It's Alright "

What do you like best?

I have used Cerner in the practice of clinical dietetics in the past when I was in my internship. I was an authorized user as I was seeing patients and providing them with nutrition care plan. I liked the template of our nutrition care process documentation- it was easy to use, straight forward, mostly clicking through things. I liked how the patient's history/data is pulled into the documentation so it does not require a lot of manual input/ typing.

What do you dislike?

While it's straight forward and you save time doing a lot of clicking through things and choices, it could be a little rigid and not as freestyle.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Through clinical documentation and diagnoses including malnutrition, the hospital gains revenues.

What do you like best?

This Cerner software is user friendly and easy to learn. I was familiar with Cerner's EMR so this was very easy for me to learn. This software is used all day long for my job and usability is very simple.

What do you dislike?

Absolutely nothing. Cerner is just very straightforward and simple to use. Tons of information is stored in each record and I can look at multiple records for the same patient.

"Cerner"

What do you like best?

The program is extremely thorough for hospital based charting. Assessment charting can flows with the employees charting. For example, if need be you can add additional sections easily with a simple right click.

What do you dislike?

Because the program is so vast, that often times makes it difficult for some users. Difficulties I found were choosing a particular hospital, or floor to find the patient list. That interface needs to be more user friendly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is an extremely multi-featured system therefore extensive training is needed to use the system

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using this system as an employee, it is important to be able to quickly chart and update patient status without lag, or taking too much time to arrive at a window to be able to place orders. The system is pretty thorough and allows one to do so.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Play around with the features it holds, and there can be shortcuts to everything! The templates can be customized to any liking and really speeds up the process of putting in medical information quickly.

What do you like best?

The design is very nice and crisp and all the available features allow great communication through the staff.

What do you dislike?

There’s too much customization available. You can set up pretty much the screen however you want which on one side isn’t a pro but when giving tutorials and trying to figure out the system can be an ache as everyone’s screen looks different and leads way to confusion. I seek a more uniform look that allows easy guidance to learn and to teach.

"Must have not been designed by MDs"

What do you like best?

There's not much to like about cerner except that perhaps it works.

What do you dislike?

It's slow, cumbersome, and clearly wasn't designed by MDs. The worst is how impossible it is to search for cases using key words for retrospective research purposes. In our version, i cant even use ctrl z to undo a change in the text, which can be horrific when an entire report is accidentally written over. I also hate that when the system times me out or locks out, it doesn't save the information.

We use cerner for reports, but there must be better options out there.

Cerner is pretty user friendly; I am an analyst in another EMR, but am able to quickly pick up how to use Cerner when needed.

What do you like best?

Everything all in one interface (I.e physicians notes, physical therapy notes, labs, vitals, H&P) as opposed to our previous EMR which only had certain info and H&P was in a different software.

What do you dislike?

Apparently there are different versions of cerner and several components we had before to generate new patient consults are not included in this version. I've used cerner at other hospitals where new patient screening (daily Braden's firing a new consult, stroke protocol, etc) automatically generated consults to our census task list.

An all in one program that every hospital discipline can utilize and see. Also the elimination of paper charting has been nice.

"It’s no EPIC... but has some benefits. "

What do you like best?

For the type of patients I have to document about, Cerner works well. It also seems very “new-user” friendly to me, as I quickly learned how to document with this software.

What do you dislike?

Its not customizeable. I feel varying fonts/colors would help make certain things stand out to make documentation easier. Also, tasks do not fall off your “task list” even after they have been documented. So sometimes you have to double document information.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Information is easily auditable, so we can see what documentation areas need to be improved upon. This has helped improve patient care and satisfaction.

What do you like best?

I have used both Sorian and Invision hospital systems by Cerner. Both systems are easy to use but Invision is a much older system so the navigation seems to be more easier to catch on to. Sorian is newer which is definitely a pro, it allows more capabilities for leaving notations and reviewing patient accounts/

With Invision I dislike the way that you have to notate, by entering everything line by line. I also dislike that there are insurance codes that are used for patients insurance.

"Easier charting but still need nurse's notes"

What do you like best?

It makes charting easier and descriptive without having to write out so much detail. Just point to what is applicable and click. it also beats having to read bad handwriting and improper abbreviations.

Sometimes a bit cumbersome to find information. Your IT person should be able to solve this by showing you how to eliminate sections you do not need to chart on or are not applicable to your unit.

Some screens are hard to chart in. Having to open up a separate page for everything is annoying. Finding past charting is annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Some of the pages are hard to use. Saving forms is slow

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Have not really solved any problems with cerner. Just easier to put charting together.

"Simple, powerful utility for surveys and communication"

What do you like best?

Easy to use interface with multiple options for surveys and contacting a listserv.

What do you dislike?

The interface felt dated but has since been updated. As both a user and recipient of surveymonkey surveys, the surveyor should be considerate about notice fatigue for end users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very simple way to connect with a wide audience, useful for contacting listserv and gaining insight and analytics.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quick communication with multiple users and comprehensive analytics

"Cerner is a fine platform "

What do you like best?

Cerner system is fairly easy to use. Many health systems utilize this service

What do you dislike?

However, many more health systems utilize Epic; and in order to communicate most efficiently with other health systems, my organization will no longer be utilizing these services. It is very important that health systems be able to communicate with each other due to patient mobilization.

Cerner is an electronic medical record system.
