2013 and beyond, why we’re excited to deliver innovations in Workforce and Operations.

More than ever before, health care organizations understand the need to develop highly efficient care teams to deliver the best care at the lowest cost. The Cerner Clairvia team is working hard to assist our clients with people, processes, and tools – enabling organizations to gain the highest value from the most valuable resource- the workforce!

From the feedback of our clients, we are excited to share new solutions and strategies on the horizon.


Patient-centric staffing models that leverage your rich clinical data to drive new efficiencies of care and improved patient outcomes

With an unprecedented number of new implementations, Clairvia’s EHR-Driven Outcomes Acuity continues to drive new data at point of care for personalized patient work assignments, while also ensuring quality transitions of care. We have standardized outcome sets and clinical mappings and are introducing a new Governance Council to ensure the evidence continues to grow for our clients.

Improved communication to our care teams drive new efficiencies of care

While Clairvia’s Patient Assignment delivers balanced and equitable assignments, we have upgraded the solution to Clairvia’s Assignment Manager which now enables assignments to caregivers, departments, and devices. You now have the opportunity to provide a seamless integration between patients, caregivers, and devices.

A new management system for total hospital efficiency where patient flow, staffing and care coordination are operating at equilibrium

With partnering clients, Clairvia is implementing the Command Center, an operational headquarters for resource staffing, patient flow, patient and equipment tracking, and care coordination. Central to the new headquarters is the Command Center Dashboard to provide the “pace of care” for the organization and key real-time indicators for proactive decision support and predictive algorithms. Data from the Command Center will feed Clairvia’s Care Value Analytics to support new analysis for performance improvement and feedback for a “learning system.”

New models of care for population health

We are working with our clients to build a workforce for new care delivery models including a focus on chronic disease management, transitions of care, and venues across the full continuum of care including extended care, medical homes, and clinics.

Clairvia end-users want fast, easy, and smart solutions

With each release, the Clairvia team is incorporating ideas from our clients to improve workflows, make solutions smarter, and upgrade the infrastructure to ensure optimal end-user experience and high solution value add.

New Management Services will enable you to focus on other priorities while ensuring the Clairvia solutions are continually optimized.

We now offer three new services including: (1) Application Management Services (AMS) offering 24×7/365 proactive monitoring, system management and world-class Level-2 production support. (2) Remote Hosting Options leveraging Cerner’s award-winning expertise gained from managing over 250 client systems. (3) Workforce and Operations Works providing highly experienced personnel to manage your operations on-site including leadership, performance improvement, and change management.

New client support tools to improve our communication and support to your team.

We have introduced new communication tools (1) UCern is a collaborative web site that uses social business technology to allow members to form communities based on professional role, Cerner solutions and special interests. Within uCern, you can create and share documents, discussions, polls, blog posts and videos. (2) A new support portal for logging and viewing service inquiries, and experienced Client Advocates who are committed to helping you navigate through unforeseen challenges.

We are excited about the work we are doing with our clients. It is through these partnerships that we are truly able to make a difference in health and care. For more information on the work we are doing or for questions on how we can serve your organization, please contact Bradley Cordes, Director of Client Operations, at 816-201-3257. We look forward to hearing from you.

Warmest Regards,
