Wyoming medical district board votes to go forward with Oracle Cerner EHR

Sundance, Wyo.-based Crook County Medical Services District has decided to transition away from its existing EHR system and go live with a Oracle Cerner EHR system, The Sundance Times reported Dec. 15.  

The board of trustees for the medical district had to find a replacement EHR system after several issues with its previous one resulted in low clinician satisfaction, a lack of access to health information, billing issues and increased administrative burden.  

Crook County Medical Services District also reported billing issues with its current system that tripled the healthcare organization's accounts receivable to around $3 million.

After putting together a list of all the available EHR vendors, lead committee member Wesley Davis, DNP, told the Sundance Times that the organization narrowed it down to "three top contenders."

"The committee then looked at specific challenges and reached out to the shortlisted companies to ask how their EMR would help to solve them," said Mr. Davis. 

The group of trustees voted to enter into a contract with Oracle Cerner on Dec. 9 in hopes to advance patient safety, reduce clinician burden and improve interoperability. The board will approve the contract pending a review by an attorney.
