Tulare Regional Medical Center preps for Cerner go-live

Tulare (Calif.) Regional Medical Center is scheduled to go live on its Cerner EHR Oct. 17, reports Visalia Times-Delta.

The hospital, affiliated with Healthcare Conglomerate Associates, plans to consolidate departmental IT systems, including pharmacy, radiology and laboratory, into a single platform.

The EHR will be called Care Team Connect, and will also integrate admitting, medical records and patient accounting into one workflow for hospital employees, according to the report.

Patients will also be able to access a new patient portal, where they can view health information, check appointments, download lab results, view bills and communicate with providers.

"Our new electronic health record…provide[s] increased efficiency, accuracy and ease of access for our patients and providers," Kathleen Johnson, vice president of marketing at HCCA/TRMC, told Visalia Times-Delta. "We are embarking on a new exciting chapter of clinical excellence here at Tulare Regional Medical Center."
