Cerner to transfer nearly 1,300 more employees to Adventist

Almost 1,300 California-based employees of Cerner will become employees of Adventist Health, Los Angeles Daily News reports.

The Kansas City, Mo.-based EHR vendor confirmed earlier this month that it would transfer approximately 360 jobs in information technology and revenue management services from its headquarters to Roseville, Calif.-based Adventist. The swap follows Cerner and Adventist's January 2018 partnership, during which Adventist sent 275 jobs to Cerner to assume day-to-day management of the health system's revenue cycle and clinical applications staff.

The jobs transition will affect 1,296 total California-based Cerner employees and will take effect Dec. 1, according to the report.

A Cerner spokesperson told the publication in an Oct. 15 statement that "All Cerner RevWorks associates were offered employment by Adventist Health." Cerner positions affected by the transfer include patient access representatives, medical coders, coding managers and billing specialists, according to Los Angeles Daily News.
