Nearly 70 Penn State Health facilities go live on Cerner EHR

Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey (Pa.) Medical Center, Reading, Pa.-based Penn State Health St. Joseph and 67 other outpatient practice sites affiliated with Hershey-based Penn State Health went live on a Cerner EHR during the first weekend of June, the Reading Eagle reports.

The Cerner EHR will provide patients with access to a patient portal, called My Penn State Health, and access to single billing statements. The EHR replaces several disparate systems in place across Penn State Health. Penn State Health St. Joseph, for example, used a Meditech EHR.

The remaining outpatient sites affiliated with Penn State Medical Group and St. Joseph Medical Group will go live on the EHR during future phases of the project, according to the Reading Eagle.
