Cerner rolls out Millennium upgrade to support Phase 1a vaccination program
Electronic medical record vendor Cerner has rolled out upgrades to its Millennium suite to support Australia’s Phase 1a COVID-19 vaccination program, adding packages that allow hospitals to manage patient registration, core medications and documentation of each vaccination encounter.
Cerner vaccination data can be extracted to support the upload of vaccination details to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) and the company is currently developing a direct link to the AIR from within the EMR.
The system is live this week and is supporting the first phase of the vaccination program at The Alfred in Melbourne, and Westmead, Liverpool and RPA hospitals in Sydney.
