Scalability, Communication Ensured Across all Settings with Single Database, Unified Model

By building applications on a single, consolidated database and unified data model, Cerner Millenium ensures scalability and communication across all care settings. As healthcare professionals run tests, make diagnoses, fill medications, administer care and remit bills, the system collects, shares and displays all critical information.
Cerner Millenium utilizes a shared database that consolidates nonrepetitive data, eliminating time-consuming duplication of data entry and fragmentation of records.
Shared process servers, such as patient identification, scheduling, ordering, charging, results, documentation and measurement, eliminates the confusion of multiple applications performing the same functions in multiple, unconnected ways.
The system also offers decision support that operates across shared data and functions, creating a complete picture of patients’ care and supports caregivers with alerts on quality, safety, best practice and efficiency issues.
