I attended Cerner's global gathering of health care professionals beginning October 12 in Kansas City. We discussed the future of health care, innovations, and best practices. Cerner’s own blog recaps major events and themes. Delaware had a strong contingent in attendance. Cerner provides health care IT services to Christiana Care and many of Delaware’s other hospitals and physician groups. The relationship between Delaware’s health care community and Cerner expanded as the movement to create electronic medical records (EMR) has accelerated. As a result, Cerner now handles over 70% of Delawareans’ EMR. Delaware connects more electronic patient records with health care providers and labs than any other state through its health information exchange, or HIE, known as the Delaware Health Information Network (the DHIN). The DHIN’s COO, Randy Farmer, explained the DHIN’s role and vision in a recent News Journal Op Ed.
