Cerner Corporation continues to support health systems around the world as they fight the COVID-19 pandemic. Cerner has taken steps to enhance and introduce new technology offerings, waive license fees for expansion of hospital beds, join with other companies to offer virtual health solutions, provide Cerner associate assistance, and offer community support globally.

“This is a critical time for our clients who continue to be pushed to unprecedented limits in their heroic efforts to protect the health and safety of organizations, patients they treat, and the communities where we live and work,” said Cerner CEO Brent Shafer. “At Cerner, we understand our responsibility of providing the infrastructure and support they need to help combat this global pandemic. Now, more than ever, our health care clients are relying on our technology, capacity, and flexibility in supporting their frontline work to care for patients.”

Weeks ago, Cerner developed a dedicated COVID-19 Taskforce to make health, safety, and business continuity decisions for its associates and clients across the world. Teams focused on business continuity efforts enabled the company’s move to a safer, more virtual environment and have worked around the clock to help support clients, Cerner’s worldwide associate base, and communities.

Cerner Client Support

Since the global onset of COVID-19, Cerner has executed numerous measures to make it easier for clients to perform life-saving work. Recently, Cerner launched a dedicated resource site giving clients access to new and updated offerings. From electronic health record to telehealth solutions, Cerner has expanded its technology to meet the needs of clients during this unprecedented time.

Cerner has implemented policies to address the physical, mental, and financial well-being of associates.

Cerner Community Support

Cerner’s clients and associates live and work in communities across the globe, and community support goes beyond a single geographical area. While Cerner is prepared to expand services and contributions as the needs of populations evolve, to date, the company, associates, and their foundation – First Hand – have offered assistance to a number of charitable initiatives. One local effort First Hand is supporting is the Chester County Community Foundation COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund.
