Quick registration go-live at WCH

9/4/14 | Newsroom, September

On September 4 Cerner’s quick registration (Quick Reg) solution was implemented at Women’s and Children’s Hospital.  Quick Reg allows MU Health Care to bypass IDX and quickly register a patient into Cerner with limited patient data. The benefits of Quick Reg  include:

    • Efficiency - LBRecording patient information  into Cerner Millennium with minimal information to prevent delays in the event of an unconscious patient or where treatment must commence immediately.
    • Registering a patient in Cerner even if there is missing or unavailable patient information.
    • Serving as a back-up to IDX in the event of GE downtime.

The implementation of Quick Reg supports our Create Efficiency goal and contributes to improved patient care.

Primary Goal:  Maximize Efficiency

Primary Goal: Maximize Efficiency

SLXN Spacelabs is a two-way interface between Spacelabs patient monitors (which display the patient’s physiological data such as heart rate, blood pressure, pulse oximetry, etc.) and the patient’s medical record — Cerner Millennium.  Added functionality through SLXNI allows for a simplified admission and discharge process for nursing resulting in a reduction in potential patient to device association errors.
