Cerner to launch cognitive health platform, EHR training framework & more initiatives

Brent Shafer, CEO at Cerner, unveiled several of the EHR vendor's new initiatives and products centered on healthcare innovation during the annual Cerner Health Conference Oct. 7-9, in Kansas City, Mo.

Mr. Shafer announced the development of Cerner's new cognitive health platform, code named Project Apollo. The cloud-based platform is a combination of Cerner's technology and Amazon Web Services' cloud infrastructure. Cerner selected AWS as its preferred cloud provider in July. Project Apollo aims to streamline innovations with Cerner platforms by removing manual steps clients must take to integrate new applications, which inevitably slow the pace of adoption.

In addition to Project Apollo, here are four other products and initiatives Mr. Shafer announced at CHC:

1. The EHR vendor is creating an intelligence ecosystem focused on innovating user experiences and care delivery algorithms.

2. Cerner is adding artificial intelligence and predictive analytics to its opioid abuse prevention toolkit to help clients identify potential at-risk patients with insights beyond prescribing history. 

3. Spun out from Cerner's work with the Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense in the federal space, the company will roll out an interoperability tool dubbed Cerner Seamless Interoperability, which takes data from connectivity to usability to help give back time to clinicians.

4. Cerner will launch the Cerner Learning Framework, which is a web-based training platform available to its clients at no cost.
