Cerner has been around for a long time and Clairvia is stated to be EHR agnostic and from the press release it states that it will stay that way and will be integrated with Cerner medical records. With business intelligence software the hospitals can get a bird’s eye view with reference to scheduling, staffing and more.
In addition the company also appears to consult and brings mobile technology on board as relates to scheduling and shifts. BD
In an effort to boost its business intelligence capabilities, Cerner Corporation will acquire Clairvia, a health information technology provider of software that offers predictive models driven by data stored in electronic health records (EHRs).
The deal, which was announced October 7, reflects the growing need for companies like Cerner to offer their healthcare customers a better way to analyze relevant clinical data through business intelligence software that helps providers improve patient care quality, patient safety, and staff productivity as well as enhance reimbursement management systems. Plans are to integrate Clairvia's Care Value Management suite into Cerner's broader cloud-based and interoperability platforms, Cerner Healthe Intent and CareAware. That will allow Cerner to offer a comprehensive suite of resource management solutions.
More than 400 organizations worldwide use Clairvia's tools. Its clients range in size from large healthcare systems to specialty physician practices. One of the advantages to Clairvia's tools, Cerner officials said, is that their software is EHR-system agnostic and integrates with numerous platforms, including Cerner Millennium.
While financial details of the deal were not disclosed, the transaction is expected to close in mid-October and Clairvia associates in North Carolina will continue to remain in Durham, where its headquarters are located.
