United Medical, Cerner and Gateway EDI are working together to improve population health management. As the largest private ambulatory health care network in Delaware, United Medical is comprised of 20 specialties and more than 60 practices throughout the state. As a Cerner Ambulatory partner, the group operates with a unique objective in mind: to unite providers and patients under one Accountable Care Organization (ACO). The goal is to work with individual practices to increase the quality of patient care, streamline processes in the office and leave more time for each patient. With a local network currently uniting more than 150 providers and 250,000 patients, United Medical is well on its way to changing the health care landscape in Delaware.
“We aim to change the behavior of patients, insurance companies, government policy, physicians, hospitals and health systems. We are focused on a vision of a patient-centered community with Cerner,” says Kemal Erkan, CEO of United Medical.
A community of care
In line with the government’s recent push to encourage physicians to adopt electronic health records (EHRs), Erkan’s team at United Medical works with practices throughout the state to assist in the adoption and implementation of Cerner’s Ambulatory EHR. Working exclusively with Cerner solutions helps the United Medical team take advantage of efficiencies across the system and become confident users of those solutions.
