Northeastern Health System taps Cerner for EHR, RCM system

Tahlequah, Okla.-based Northeastern Health System will deploy Cerner's integrated EHR and revenue cycle management system across its acute and ambulatory facilities, the health IT vendor announced Dec. 18.

Northeastern Health System officials selected Cerner CommunityWorks, a cloud-based IT platform focused on the rural and community hospital market. Under the agreement, the health system's two hospitals and six clinics in northeastern Oklahoma will transition to the Cerner Millennium EHR, which provides physicians with access to patients' clinical and financial data.

The Cerner CommunityWorks IT platform will also offer patients access to an online portal to message physicians, schedule appointments and access their health history.

"NHS is a thriving community healthcare organization making a major impact on the populations they serve," said Michael Farrell, vice president of Cerner CommunityWorks. "It is exciting for Cerner to be involved with and help support NHS's continued growth and advancement in providing essential care and health services."
