Through its remote-hosting offering, Cerner will manage and support Maury Regional’s EHR and deliver clinical data from its Kansas City-based data center.

“Cerner will provide our organization with enhanced capabilities that will be beneficial for providers and patients,” Maury Regional Health CEO Alan Watson said in a statement. “We are excited to unveil Cerner’s integrated health IT platform that will support our care teams across the continuum and unleash the potential of sophisticated functionality.”

Maury Regional will also adopt Cerner Transaction Services. The services provide recommended practice workflows across Cerner revenue cycle management solutions to prevent redundant tasks and manage manual intervention.
