Cerner has been a top 3 vendor for decades. With that comes numerous releases, revisions and variation in standards support. It is quite common for Cerner clients to require HL7 data mapping between Cerner’s own modules. Among the reasons, the most common is different versions of the HL7 standard being utilized between modules. For example, a hospital’s patient registration may be broadcasting ADT (Admit / Discharge / Transfer) messages in HL7 v2.5, while the receiving application, Ambulatory Patient Administration, only supports HL7 v2.3.1.
Fear not, Outcome Healthcare is well versed in Cerner’s extensive set of modules and how to interoperate with them, both internally to a facility and externally with business partners.
