About Cerner CareTracker
Cerner Corporation develops software and services designed for healthcare. Cerner products are used at over 18,000 facilities across the world for clinical, financial, and operational workflows.
CareTracker, from Cerner, is a point-of-care electronic documentation system designed especially for long-term care environments. CareTracker, when utilized properly, can help improve reimbursements, clinical outcomes, and regulatory compliance using touchscreens and mobile devices. CareTracker can help improve your long-term care delivery through reducing/eliminating copying of entries, tracking missed entries, and ensuring accuracy of recorded information. Caregivers use passwords or a thumbprint scanner to log in, ensuring robust system security. CareTracker can even monitor dehydration risk, skin problems, poor intake, weight gain/loss, behavioral concerns, and alerts staff when problems arise. Using the intuitive resident dashboard, CareTracker allows users to quickly and easily get a full picture of each resident. CareTracker improves communication between front-line staff and management, through dissemination of real-time information concerning facility functions and resident status. It even allows creation of facility and resident-specific plans for restorative programs, behaviors, toileting, turn-and-reposition schedules, or anything unique to a specific resident or facility. The Clinical Intelligence module analyzes millions of data records to quickly spot issues before they become a problem, and also can create trend or comparison reports, or perform complex custom analysis.
More than 80 percent of facilities that adopted CareTracker increased Medicaid/Medicare reimbursements by more than $50,000 following implementation. When deployed alongside Cerner’s PowerChart LTC and MDS Intelligence, Cerner CareTracker is a powerful central hub for patient-specific documentation and workflows.
