Cerner, Universal Health Services Reach Agreement

Cerner and Universal Health Services, Inc. have entered into an agreement to implement Cerner’s clinically driven Millennium Revenue Cycle.

Cerner will replace UHS’ legacy INVISION revenue cycle solution with the new system that will integrate with UHS’ existing Cerner Millennium electronic health record (EHR) and HIM health information technology functionality. Working together, these systems will help UHS facilities achieve revenue cycle excellence.

The enterprise-wide revenue cycle management system, paired with UHS’ current solutions, will help advance integration between clinical and financial information for the acute care and ambulatory facilities that will be supported. The unified design, including Patient Access, Patient Accounting, Case Management and EDI Services, will also help manage staff efficiency and effectiveness, while streamlining revenue cycle workflows.

“Since 2009, UHS has worked with Cerner as our primary health care technology partner,” said Mike Nelson, UHS vice president of Information Services and CIO. “Cerner’s configurable solutions will meet our evolving and complex business needs. For these reasons, we are confident Cerner is the right choice for us as we look to positively impact our overall financial goals.”

“UHS has realized positive, measurable results since first implementing Cerner and we are committed to helping the company continue to achieve strong patient outcomes and meet its financial goals with a clinically driven Millennium Revenue Cycle,” said Zane Burke, president of Cerner.
