Oracle Cerner answers top-of-mind questions about Cerner RevElate

Dynamically connecting workflows. Tackling workflow redundancy. Future-proofing.

Healthcare administrators expect these benefits– and it's why they are excited about Cerner RevElate™, the new patient accounting solution from Oracle Cerner.

Cerner RevElate was announced in October 2021, and as you might guess, much work has been dedicated to preparing the solution for general availability in Fall 2022.
Today, Oracle Cerner aims to address the questions that are top of mind in the market, including:

  • What is the status of Cerner RevElate development and availability?
  • What makes Cerner RevElate different?
  • What's next?

What is the status of Cerner RevElate development and availability?

Since the announcement of the product last fall, the Oracle Cerner revenue cycle team and the beta clients have been working hard to deliver the committed capabilities and address validation feedback. Additionally, Oracle Cerner recently shared that they are nearing the first Cerner RevElate live event at BayCare Health System in Q4 2022, and they have kicked off the first migration event at Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC).

With the progress to date, the initial Cerner RevElate offering is anticipated to be generally available in fall 2022. That means that new clients and clients on legacy systems can begin implementations starting early 2023.

How is Cerner RevElate Patient Accounting different?

It's simple: Oracle Cerner can offer a unique revenue cycle solution that helps enable clinically-driven automation in an open, extensible ecosystem. Cerner RevElate can connect financial concepts, drive automation, and simplify complex workflows between multiple data sources and technologies as a network-level patient accounting product.

Four key functions that help to create a comprehensive, flexible, and innovative product include:

  1. Advanced automation and intelligence throughout the billing cycle
  2. A workflow-centric experience designed to reduce redundancy and enable skilled resources to dedicate their time to higher-value work
  3. An open, extensible environment for innovation – allowing clients to dynamically connect workflows and innovate to help drive growth and enable future-proofing
  4. A single and efficient end-user experience across venues and even A/R management systems

So, what's next?

In Q4, Oracle Cerner's first beta client, BayCare, will go live with Cerner RevElate. Service-based integration will connect Cerner Millennium® registration, scheduling, and EHR with Cerner RevElate™ Patient Accounting. In addition, Baycare will adopt key enhancements such as clinically integrated business rules, reconciliation reporting, and a more unified patient accounting experience.

In July, Oracle Cerner kicked off projects with two other validation partners: CoxHealth and CAMC. CoxHealth is implementing Cerner Millennium® registration and scheduling along with an uplift to Cerner RevElate Patient Accounting with a targeted live event in 2023. CAMC is on target to be the first beta client to migrate their back office from Cerner Millennium Patient Accounting to Cerner RevElate Patient Accounting. CAMC will begin to take and test new capabilities, such as build migration tools and the A/R workbench, in fall 2022, with a planned complete migration to Cerner RevElate in Q2-2023. In addition, Oracle Cerner is working with existing clients to create a well-coordinated transition throughout 2023 and 2024.
