Health Information Management | Cerner



Leverage information through a clinically driven revenue cycle

It is important for healthcare organizations to have an efficient way of managing the information that’s part of a patient’s health journey and subsequently, reimbursement influences. That’s why Cerner Health Information Management (HIM) connects with the electronic health record (EHR) to allow for access to near real-time information. This connection enables organizations to monitor and support health information electronically for a comprehensive medical record. By leveraging accurate documentation through a clinically driven revenue cycle, coding staff can work toward avoiding delays, protecting against audit risk and focusing on more complex issues and strategic quality initiatives.
