Cerner teams up with virtual care provider

Cerner announced Jan. 13 it has partnered with virtual primary care provider HealthTap to extend its offerings beyond on-site and near-site centers.

The EHR vendor will leverage HealthTap's digital platform to support self-funded employers. These employers will now be able to offer end-to-end primary care services to their employees. Cerner users will now be able to access a board-certified physician 24/7.

HealthTap's platform also uses artificial intelligence so users can search physician answers to their questions and receive guidance for many medical concerns they may have.

"At Cerner, we are focused on bringing innovative solutions to some of healthcare's most urgent challenges, and digital technology offers employers the opportunity to provide convenient and cost-efficient services," said David Bradshaw, senior vice president of consumer and employer solutions at Cerner.
