Mercy Hospital & Medical Center Reaches HIMSS Stage 6 Using Cerner Millennium Solutions
KANSAS CITY, Mo. and CHICAGO, April 3, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercy Hospital & Medical Center, Chicago's first hospital, is now also one of Chicago's most automated hospitals. Mercy was recently recognized as being in the top 0.5 percent of hospitals in the United States for its use of electronic medical records (EMRs) by the Healthcare Information Management and Systems Society (HIMSS), an organization that provides leadership on the use of healthcare information technology (HIT). Mercy used the Cerner Solutions Center to implement 21 Cerner Millennium(r) HIT solutions in 14 months, allowing it to quickly achieve a level of automation that takes most hospitals seven years to realize.
