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.
Not very intuitive at all. Too many clicks for basic processes. Not modifiable. Not designed well for outpatient use.
I would look elsewhere for an outpatient platform.

Top-rated vendor with ongoing constant innovation and focus on interoperability.
I don't really have anything negative to include in this review about this vendor.
I don't have any recommendations for others evaluating software like this.

There are many different ways to do the same tasks. For example, opening a patient's chart, or charting allergies.
The thing I like least is there are too many buttons and options. It slows up user functionality.
PowerChart is better than compared to other software.

Can pull information forward and incorporate outside information into note.
Too much typing. Graphics are not any good. 72 clicks on average.
Spend time getting to know it. Learn about macros and auto text.
