Cerner has announced an agreement with telehealth vendor American Well to integrate the company’s telemedicine platform with Cerner’s electronic health record (EHR).
The integrated EHR-telehealth solution will be available to current and future Cerner and American Well clients, according to a Cerner press release. Patients will interact with the solution through Cerner’s HealtheLifeSM patient engagement portal.
“Cerner and American Well share the belief that all aspects of health care delivery should be unified, continuous and patient-centered. Together, we’re committed to developing a long-term strategy to align American Well’s telehealth technologies, services and programs to deliver an enhanced user experience within the Cerner EHR and ecosystem,” Don Bisbee, senior vice president at Cerner, said in a statement.
“Our alliance with Cerner and deep integration between the electronic health record and telehealth visit is one of the industry’s first. We look forward to a long-term, collaborative relationship of deploying advanced telehealth solutions that add greater value for our joint health system clients along with their patients and providers,” Ido Schoenberg, M.D., chairman and CEO of American Well, said.
