Inspira Health Network, a nonprofit healthcare organization that serves communities across New Jersey, has selected Cerner to implement an enterprise-wide health IT system, including an EHR and population health management software.

The Inspira team has named the new system InspiraOne. It will support the delivery of care across primary, acute and advanced services.

“We see InspiraOne as more than just a health IT system. It’s the catalyst to dramatically transform how we are able to care for our patients at our more than 100 points of access,” Inspira CEO John DiAngelo said in a statement. The goal, he added, is to boost quality and safety for patients.

As part of InspiraOne, Cerner’s Millennium EHR will be extended across the network’s three hospitals and more than 100 ambulatory clinics.

Inspira will leverage Cerner’s remote-hosting services for the management and support of its EHR. It means that Cerner will manage and deliver clinical data from its datacenter.

Cerner executives note that the CernerWorks Remote Hosting Option has been named “Best in KLAS” based on feedback from thousands of healthcare providers around the world.

The new technology will displace 17 disparate IT platforms, including the Cerner Soarian clinical platform in play today at Inspira.

Inspira will also implement HealtheIntent, Cerner’s population health management platform. The technology is designed to aggregate data from multiple sources into a single patient record.
