Cerner is a supplier of health information technology (HIT) solutions.
It was founded in 1979 by Neal Patterson, Cliff Illig, and Paul Gorup who respectively serve as the CEO, Vice Chairman, and Vice President of the Knowledge & Content Team. The company's mission is to connect the appropriate persons, knowledge and resources at the appropriate time and location to achieve the optimal health outcome. As a result, the founders created Cerner Millennium, the industry's first person-centric integrated architecture. Cerner Millennium is a partnership of Cerner and HP. The architecture of Millennium allows caregivers and supporting providers the ability to view results, problems, diagnosis, medications, and other pertinent information in real-time. In a continued effort to reduce waste and friction in healthcare, Cerner has developed many solutions including employee health, life sciences, medical devices, clinical trial management, and biosurveillance.
Organizations ranging from single-doctor practices, to hospitals, to corporations, to local regional and national government agencies use Cerner solutions.
The company is headquartered in Kansas City, MO and works with more than 8,000 clients worldwide. Associates span 7,300 worldwide with offices in Malaysia, Australia, India, United Arab Emirates, and many others.
Cerner’s use of Oracle’s Database Technology
Cerner Millennium applications use an Oracle database and provide a common data model to enable data sharing between applications and to eliminate redundant data, while maximizing reliability and performance. This implementation runs on a variety of networks, processors and operating systems, including Windows XP Professional and any Internet browser. http://cerner.com/public/Cerner_2.asp?id=27196
All Millennium installs take advantage of the full Oracle database stack (9iEE, RAC, and the Management Packs). Oracle’s Real Application Clustering (RAC) enables both reliability and scalability by allowing the addition of servers to the host cluster. Cerner also uses Oracle’s Tuning Pack, Diagnostic Pack, and Change Management Pack to help protect the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of its Millennium healthcare data. Oracle’s EAL 4 (Evaluation Assurance Level 4) rating also attests to its robust security. [] MikeField 08:49, 17 January 2010 (CST)
