Cerner Implementation Successful in Lexington; OneCare Schedule Update
After just two weeks live on the Cerner electronic health records system, we have achieved 87 percent physician compliance with provider order entry (CPOE) at Saint Joseph Hospital, Saint Joseph East, Saint Joseph Jessamine and Continuing Care Hospital. The hospitals have earned a place among the top 20 percent of Cerner clients. The average for Cerner clients with this system is 74.1 percent CPOE compliance — and that includes hospitals that have been live on Cerner a long time.
Calls to the Command Center continue to decrease, and the team is making good progress closing outstanding issues. Congratulations all!
In other OneCare news, due to CHI’s FY14 budget constraints, OneCare was asked to significantly reduce its FY14 budget. The significant nature of the budget reduction coupled with the necessity to have all markets ready to support ICD-10 documentation, coding and workflows by October 2014, necessitated a quick, but thoughtful, review and schedule revision. How does this new schedule affect KentuckyOne?
