IASIS Healthcare will roll out a Cerner integrated system for its clinical and financial records.

The Tennessee health system will implement an electronic health record and revenue cycle system across all its hospitals, clinics and other provider facilities that together serve more than 1.1 million patients annually.

"We chose Cerner because we believe they provide a system that will enhance our efforts to provide high quality, cost-effective healthcare for our patients and health plan members," W. Carl Whitmer, president and CEO of IASIS, said in a news release. "We also believe that Cerner will be a sustainable and scalable long-term option, which is important to us."

"We look forward to working with Cerner to successfully implement a comprehensive EHR and revenue cycle system across various geographies," added IASIS CIO Brian Loflin. "Cerner is well established with other health organizations in our regions, which will benefit providers across the continuum of care as they strive to make informed health decisions based on patients' complete health records."
