Cerner PowerChart Software


 

Cerner Corporation created its electronic medical records (EMR) solution, PowerChart, to directly address the needs of clinicians—from those at hospitals and ambulatory facilities down to primary care physicians. Its templates support over fifty specialties, as well, making it easy to customize for a wide range of medical providers.

PowerChart’s strength lies in its ability to coordinate care between multiple locations and practitioners, reducing duplicated records while still giving staff flexible documentation options. These flexible documentation options are reflected in the program’s 700-plus templates and customizable procedure workflows.

PowerChart is ONC-ATCB certified and Meaningful Use Stage 1 and 2 certified. Its patient portal helps providers to enhance patient communication by sending appointment reminders and empowering patients with access to their medical records.

Cerner was named one of the “10 Most Innovative Companies in America” by Forbes in 2012.

The only redeeming aspect is the ICD-10 diagnostic codes included in it, makes it easier than thumbing through the catalog or even some of the websites out there.

Likes Least

Not very intuitive at all. Too many clicks for basic processes. Not modifiable. Not designed well for outpatient use.

Recommendations

I would look elsewhere for an outpatient platform.

There are many different ways to do the same tasks. For example, opening a patient's chart, or charting allergies.

Likes Least

The thing I like least is there are too many buttons and options. It slows up user functionality.

Recommendations

PowerChart is better than compared to other software.
