Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation Taps Oracle Cerner EHR Integration

The Oracle Cerner EHR integration will allow clinicians to personalize care by assigning patients digital content through the patient portal.  

The Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is streamlining addiction treatment and recovery support content distribution through an Oracle Cerner EHR integration.

The new system is set to make it easier for providers to personalize care by assigning patients digital content, such as therapeutic education, exercises, and workshops, through the EHR’s patient portal.

Hazelden Betty Ford is the country’s largest nonprofit system of addiction treatment, mental health care, recovery resources, and related prevention and education services.

“We are committed to personalized care and empowering our patients with accessible, relevant resources at every stage of recovery,” Deb Bauman, chief information officer and vice president of technology services at Hazelden Betty Ford, said in a press release.

“Digital health content is a critical component of our care and support, and our collaboration with Oracle Cerner and Xealth is helping us get the right content to the right patients at the right time.”

In December 2020, Oracle Cerner and health IT vendor Xealth partnered to help providers leverage online content to serve their patients better.

Clinicians at Hazelden Betty Ford will now be able to assign therapeutic content from their EHR workflow in response to patient situations and in anticipation of patient needs.

“Digital health is proving to reshape patient care and helps enable caregivers to create more engaging and effective patient experiences,” said Bob Kopanic, Oracle Cerner senior vice president of North American client relationships.

“This integration makes it easier for clinical staff to do their most important work - caring for their patients. We’re pleased to help make it easier for Hazelden Betty Ford caregivers to meet patients where they are with digital health content that is easy to access and consume when and where they’d like to.”
