St. Joseph’s Healthcare System Selects Cerner’s Clinical, Financial and Population Health Management IT System


St. Joseph’s Healthcare System, a nationally recognized health care provider, has selected Cerner, a global leader in health care technology, to implement an integrated electronic health record (EHR) and revenue cycle management system across its acute, long-term care and ambulatory facilities.

“This is a critical step in our mission to improve the quality of care we provide throughout northern New Jersey,” said Kevin J. Slavin, president and CEO of St. Joseph’s. “In addition to creating a more seamless delivery model for our physicians and clinical teams, this conversion will help us provide improved care coordination for our patients and their families. We are excited to work with Cerner in our transition to a more comprehensive, integrated health IT platform.”

The CernerMillennium® EHR and HealtheIntentSM, Cerner’s near real-time population health management system that aggregates data from multiple sources, will support St. Joseph’s nearly 1,000 beds. HealtheIntent will establish a longitudinal record, which will provide St. Joseph’s clinicians with a comprehensive, unified view of an individual’s health and care experiences.

“We are proud to earn the opportunity to continue our relationship with St. Joseph’s, a longtime Soarian client,” said John Glaser, senior vice president of Population Health at Cerner, “We’re dedicated to supporting the health system’s transition to Millennium, a more robust and connected health IT solution model, working toward improved health outcomes for individuals and communities.”

St. Joseph’s ambulatory facilities will transition to MillenniumRevenue Cycle, Cerner’s integrated platform of revenue cycle solutions designed to improve workflows and drive performance across patient populations. The agreement also includes Cerner Transaction Services, a suite of core services that helps reduce traditional bolt-on solutions and provides recommended practice workflows across Cerner revenue cycle solutions to prevent redundant tasks and manage manual intervention.

St. Joseph will also leverage Cerner’s Business Office Management services, offered through Cerner’s revenue cycle services organization, RevWorksSM. With Business Office Management, Cerner billing professionals will provide back-end billing office support to manage accounts receivable including denial management and preventions at St. Joseph’s ambulatory clinics.
