Midland Health in Texas, which includes Midland Memorial Hospital and affiliated health clinics, will roll out a new EHR and also financial and population health management systems from Cerner.

Midland Memorial’s 474-bed hospital and its community clinics will convert from disparate IT systems in place today to Cerner’s integrated digital platform, which includes the Cerner Millennium EHR, population health management and revenue cycle management.

The hospital will employ HealtheIntent, Cerner’s population health management platform, which is designed to collect data from multiple sources into a single patient record.

Midland Health intends to offer its clinicians a more holistic view of their patients’ health status to provide them with insights and improve care coordination. Patients, for their par, will have access to an online patient portal where they can schedule appointments as well as view personal health information and clinical results.

“When considering which supplier would best support Midland Health, we were focused on specific important capabilities,” Midland CFO Stephen Bowerman said in a statement. “We required a system that would provide clinical visibility between the physician practice and acute care setting and a revenue cycle integrated with the EHR.”

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
