Cerner to debut 'longitudinal patient records' by next year

Cerner demonstrated new interoperability capabilities it plans to roll out through 2020 during the HIMSS19 trade show this week in Orlando, Fla.

By next year Cerner plans to debut a longitudinal patient record that would offer clinicians access to an organized, structured view of a patient's medical data aggregated from multiple clinical sources.

"We're working toward a future that enables a greater exchange of data," said Kashif Rathore, vice president of interoperability at Cerner. "When providers and patients can easily access health information and care communication is streamlined, it drives better outcomes."

Other interoperability functions Cerner plans to roll out through next year include open standards for edge development, data reconciliation and referral management. By the end of 2019, Cerner said it will release a service that allows multiple providers to collaborate on a single patient care plan.
