New enhancements Epic, Oracle Cerner and Meditech are adding to their EHR systems

Electronic health record vendors Epic, Oracle Cerner and Meditech are adding new partnerships and tech upgrades to build upon their offerings for healthcare organizations. 


Meditech added a population health management tool, Expanse Population Insight, to its population health portfolio.

The new tool, powered by the Innovaccer data platform, aggregates data from claims and EHRs to provide clinicians with actionable data insights. 

The aim of the new tool is to provide clinicians with data needed to prioritize patient outreach and medical interventions.

Meditech also expanded its Greenfield workspace to include two new collaborative environments that help third-party developers and customers test innovations within their EHRs.  

The first expansion is Greenfield Alliance. Organizations can apply to be a part of the alliance and work with Meditech to develop new tools to enhance the company's EHR system.

The second expansion is Greenfield Workspace, where app developers can use a Meditech EHR system to test and enhance their own softwares and products. 

App developers can use this workspace to acquire hands-on experience and brainstorm with developers at Meditech conferences. 

Oracle Cerner 

Oracle Cerner is adding new product offerings to its EHR system with the aim of working to modernize the electronic health record and build a more open and more connected cloud-enabled platform. 

The first is a new integrated charting in the Cerner Millennium EHR that will enable all care team members to be able to quickly find and document the needed information in a single view without having to dig through the chart to find relevant notes from other clinicians. 

The second is a new problem summary that enables care teams to enter a quick summary view of a patient's ongoing condition so that information can easily surface in a single-view source.

To address workforce challenges, Oracle Cerner developed virtual models of care to help streamline administrative processes, like admission and discharge, while shifting time, resources and quality care to other patients.

Health systems Bloomington, Ind.-based IU Health; Phoenix-based Banner Health; Dallas-based Tenet Health; and King of Prussia, Pa.-based United Health Services are currently piloting the company's virtual care models. 

Oracle Cerner also announced a new interoperability tool called Seamless Exchange that can bring in external and internal patient data even from disparate EHR systems, removes duplicate data, and organizes the data as a single longitudinal patient record within a clinician's workflow. 


Epic partnered with Adaptive Biotechnologies, a biotechnology company, to expand clinician and patient options for those who have been diagnosed and treated for various cancers. 

The company will integrate its clonoSEQ Assay, an FDA-approved test that can monitor minimal residual disease, into Epic's EHRs, giving oncologists easy access to these tests. 

The aim of the integration is to help providers order and review clonoSEQ results. 

The integration is set to go live in 2023. 

Epic also made changes to its sepsis prediction model in a bid to improve its accuracy and make its alerts more meaningful to clinicians.

The EHR vendor began the development of its new sepsis predictive model in February 2021 and released it to customers in August.
