Wyoming hospital to deploy Cerner EHR in February

Rock Springs, Wyo.-based Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County is integrating Cerner's CommunityWorks solution, a cloud-based deployment of Cerner's IT platform, to offer better patient care, according to a Jan. 13 Rocket Miner report.

Tailored to meet the needs of community, specialty and critical access hospitals, the CommunityWorks solution is a digital platform that contains patients' health history, financial data and clinical data. 

It is being used to replace MHSC's current nine electronic medical record systems with a single, integrated platform. 

"A single integrated EMR platform has been top priority for MHSC for quite some time," Irene Richardson, CEO of MHSC, told Rocket Miner. "In order to better meet our patients' needs and continue to provide quality care, we knew we needed a more efficient and user-friendly EMR. This state-of-the-art technology will allow us to continue to offer the community a higher quality of care."

The hospital said CommunityWorks will improve patient safety, contain a patient portal, and be the single source for clinical and financial data for MHSC.

MHSC told Rocket Miner that staff will be available to help patients sign in to the new portal and add their health information once the system goes live.
