North Kansas City, Mo.-based Cerner Corp. is collaborating with the town of Nevada, Mo., the seat of Vernon County, to establish a prescription drug monitoring program, according to a Kansas City Business Journal report.

Part of Cerner's Healthy Nevada initiative, the program allows providers to see if patients have prescriptions filled in Vernon County. Additionally, the Vernon County Health Department will receive aggregate data on prescription drug usage and trends. St. Louis County, which already has a prescription drug monitoring program, will build the secure database.

Cerner helped create the Healthy Nevada program five years ago. It also helps fund the program that aims to improve healthcare in Vernon County, according to the report.
