Patient Access

Information is powerful. Getting complete and accurate information from patients at the point-of-service is a necessary step to help manage your organization's cash flow.

From the point-of-service, manage a patient's identity by creating a single patient record with a complete picture of the patient's health and financial information.

Our patient access solutions streamline information across your organization.

Power of integration

Pushing revenue cycle to the point of services. With our single platform approach across clinical and financial systems, we’ve embedded core EDI services like verifying a patient’s address, checking eligibility and benefits and validating medical necessity checks within the registration workflow.

  • Automate observation charging based on clinical activity
  • Easily manage resources when clinical orders are integrated with Cerner Scheduling Management

  • Prevent adverse appointment and procedure interactions
  • Easily move appointments around in a single view

Cerner Registration Management solution was designed to help automate the workflow and process of registration, admitting, transfers and discharges.

  • Collect co-pay or payments on outstanding balances prior to care being delivered
  • Validate eligibility and benefits in near real-time or batch functionality
