Regional West Health Services in Scottsbluff, Neb., is transitioning to the Cerner Millennium EHR system and patient portal Sept. 15.

Regional West is the parent of Regional West Medical Center, a 188-bed regional referral center and Regional West Garden County in Oshkosh, Neb.

The implementation of the new EHR system will streamline and consolidate documentation across Regional West Medical Center and its clinics. Additionally, patients at Regional West will have access to the MyRegionalWest patient portal, allowing them to schedule appointments online and receive test results, among other features.

Regional West Garden County will transition to the Cerner system at a later date.

"The Cerner system will replace multiple information technology platforms with a single system which enhances patient care and safety. Providers will now be able to use one integrated patient record to access information from both the medical center and our clinics," said Sam Norton, Regional West Health Services' CIO.
