Sturdy Memorial Hospital to install Cerner EHR  

Attleboro, Mass.-based Sturdy Memorial Hospital signed a seven-year agreement to transition to Cerner's EHR.

The 132-bed hospital will use Cerner's cloud-based deployment model, which is designed to securely manage patient health history, including clinical and financial data. Sturdy Memorial plans to install Cerner's EHR across the acute and ambulatory settings. The install will upgrade its revenue cycle operations and patient portal.

"For more than 100 years, Sturdy Memorial Hospital has remained dedicated to serving patients in this community, and providing the best quality care," SMH President and CEO Joseph Casey said in a news release. "Through a shared strategic vision with Cerner, we are confident their software solutions will help us continue to grow, meeting patient needs both now and in the future."
