Cerner awarded multi-million dollar Millennium contract
Washington Regional Medical Center, a 233-bed, acute care medical center in Fayetteville, Ark., has selected Cerner Corp. to be its clinical information system provider.
Cerner's Millennium will modernize the delivery of care by unifying the medical center's clinical, laboratory, pharmacy, radiology and surgery departments through the use of electronic health records that track a person's health history and hospital stay. The systems will provide more than 1,500 physicians, nurses and clinicians with access to patients' information from any place at any time.
The implementation of Cerner's Millennium will span more than three years with the first phase beginning August 2005 and the project reaching full capability in 2008.
