Coordinated Care Oklahoma connects to DOD using Cerner technology

Coordinated Care Oklahoma, a health information exchange, is using Cerner technology to share data with the Department of Defense.

By connecting with the DOD, active duty military personnel receiving care at hospitals participating in CCO will have their healthcare information made available to DOD facilities, and CCO members can access DOD records in their own EHRs.

"In Oklahoma we have a high number of active-duty military and retired military personnel," said Brian Yeaman, MD, chief administrative officer of CCO. "We wanted to bridge the gap and serve this group. CCO provides the link between hospitals, clinics and private physician practices statewide with this patient base of 45,000."

CCO's technology platform is a joint venture between Cerner and Browsersoft, an HIE solution provider.
