Starting on Monday, April 19, Clay County Medical Center (CCMC) will be transitioning to our new Cerner Electronic Health Record (EHR). Through this arrangement with Cerner, CCMC will move from an aging healthcare technology platform to one patient-centric EHR, supporting medical providers, nurses, and clinicians as they share data and streamline processes across CCMC. We will now be able to see notes from the medical clinic, emergency room, hospital, lab, radiology, therapy, and more in one location.
In the coming weeks, you may be asked for information that you have recently given and be asked to sign new forms for our new system. This is all in an effort to ensure our information is current and valid. We appreciate your patience and cooperation with this process. Please be prepared to produce a valid form of identification, such as a driver’s license and your current insurance card at each visit. We encourage you to come a few minutes early to your appointment to allow our team members to update your information in our new EHR.
“Today’s healthcare environment is changing rapidly, and CCMC works hard to be ahead of the curve. Our new Cerner EHR will meet the needs of CCMC and our patients for the next 10 plus years,” said Austin M. Gillard, CEO of CCMC. “Every day we are assessing the healthcare needs of the communities we serve and invest in what is needed most to improve patient care.”
