Cerner Announces Next Evolution of Cerner Millennium®
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Feb. 21, 2012 —Today Cerner (Nasdaq: CERN) announced the launch of Millennium+™, the next evolution of Cerner Millennium®. Combining
the enterprise platform with the secure Cerner Cloud, Millennium+ delivers a new user experience that is fast, smart and
easy. It provides personalized, intuitive and relevant clinical workflows via
the desktop, tablet and smartphone.
Cerner understands the importance of health system and community
interoperability, which is why Millennium+
integrates and unifies information gathered within the organization and across
the community into a provider’s workflow. Millennium+
is designed to speed up workflows, reduce clicks and ensure Cerner solutions
provide each user the information they need at the right point in the workflow
in context of the person, condition and venue.
In addition to Sepsis alerting and Chart Search, one of the first
solutions that will be launched as part of the Millennium+ platform is PowerChart+Touch™.
PowerChart+Touch was created specifically for the iPad. With a swipe of a
finger, providers can quickly and easily navigate workflows. As part of the Millennium+ platform, solutions are
available on-demand versus relying on major release schedules to access to new
capabilities. This provides client organizations, departments and individual
users to more quickly adapt to new capabilities, regulatory mandates and
“Cerner is going beyond foundational automation of the health record and
creating a new experience; not just a repository to chart activity or place
orders,” said Jeff Townsend, Cerner chief of staff and executive VP. “With this
new combination of capabilities, Cerner is well positioned to accelerate
innovation around the second order effects of a digitized industry. What you
can do now with Millennium+ is much
more than just being paperless, it moves the boundaries beyond a typical Enterprise
Health Record system.”
Millennium+ creates a new user experience that is:
- Millennium+ is designed for optimal
performance. The solution speeds up access to comprehensive clinical
workflows, anticipating the data requirements to complete end-to-end
experiences while reducing clicks and improving context of care.
- Millennium+ is smart and
aware of the context of the patient, the location and the user. It anticipates “next,” and brings
information face up in the context of the next decision or action, making it
- Millennium+ is easy to use.
The interaction is intuitive, with minimal training and configuration required.
