Health IT company Cerner has formed a strategic partnership with Fort HealthCare, an integrated hospital and health system in Fort Atkinson, Wis., to create a connected health community.

Fort HealthCare will implement more than 20 Cerner programs in addition to a wellness and chronic condition management program that will reduce the costs of treating conditions and improve health outcomes, according to Cerner. The implementation will help improve the quality of care for more than 120,000 residents in the organization’s service area through the use of Cerner Millennium programs, the company added.
