Cerner, a global leader in health care technology, and the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) announced the integration of SHM's Project BOOST™ toolkit into Cerner's Readmission Prevention Solution, available within the CernerMillennium® electronic health record (EHR).

  • Automated early identification of specific readmission risk factors and corresponding interventions
  • General Assessment of Preparedness checklist to help identify patient concerns about their readiness to leave the hospital
  • Simplified patient-centered discharge instructions to help safely transition a patient home
  • Teach Back education process and documentation to help patients comprehend pertinent information related to their hospitalization and transition

We are excited that this journey continues with the integration of SHM's award-winning Project BOOST content," said Bharat Sutariya, MD, FACEP, vice president and chief medical officer of Population Health, Cerner. "The enhanced readmission solution provides our clients with access to nationally recognized content and an industry-leading predictive model to help identify and manage patients that are at risk for readmissions."
