Great Plains Health Alliance selects Cerner for its 25 rural hospitals

Phillipsburg, Kan.-based Great Plains Health Alliance, a nonprofit healthcare management system overseeing rural hospitals in Kansas and Nebraska, will implement Cerner's EHR in its 25 affiliated critical access hospitals.

"Rural providers generally have limited resources, and Great Plains is dedicated to helping critical access and rural hospitals run more effectively and efficiently," said Dave Dellasega, president and CEO of GPHA. "We have selected Cerner for this long-term commitment to help our affiliated providers collectively access some of the industry's best solutions available."

Cerner has established a self-contained organization called Cerner CommunityWorks that supports health technology implementation and optimization in rural hospitals. CommunityWorks will assist GPHA in the transition.

"More than a quarter of the U.S. population lives in rural areas, and these critical access populations deserve access to healthcare experts and resources like the major urban hospitals have," said Mitchell Clark, president of Cerner CommunityWorks.
