Adventist to transfer 275 jobs to Cerner

Adventist Health will send roughly 275 jobs from its Roseville, Calif., headquarters to Cerner as part of its expanded partnership with the EHR vendor, the Sacramento Business Journal reports.

As part of the expanded partnership, Cerner will take on the day-to-day management of Adventist's revenue cycle and clinical applications IT staff.

About 190 of the jobs that will be transitioned will become health IT positions, and the other 85 roles will focus on revenue processing. Employees affected by the transition have a 60-day window to accept the move. Though these employees will officially begin working for Cerner in April, they will be stationed in Adventist's headquarters.

"Adventist Health and Cerner have a longstanding relationship, but this more aligned and embedded partnership will help achieve success, support growth and realize the value of a fully digitized health system," Cerner Executive Vice President and Chief of Staff Jeff Townsend told the Sacramento Business Journal.

Adventist expects the partnership with Cerner could drive down costs related to operations and revenue processing by nearly $300 million over the next three years.
