Clinicians will be able to call out 'Hey Cerner' to navigate, document in EHR

Cerner is looking for more health systems to join St. Joseph's Health and Indiana University Health as testing partners for its new EHR voice assistance technology.

Four notes:

1. Paterson, N.J.-based St. Joseph's Health and Indianapolis-based Indiana University Health are two Cerner clients that signed up to pilot the Voice Assist technology.

2. Powered in conjunction with Nuance's virtual assistant capability, Voice Assist will allow clinicians to interact with their Cerner EHR using just their voice as a way to decrease manual data documentation.

3. Using the phrase "Hey Cerner," clinicians will be able to search for and retrieve information from patient records, place medication orders and set up reminders. 

4. Voice Assist is expected to be widely available to Cerner clients in 2021, according to an Oct. 19 news release emailed to Becker's Hospital Review.
