Electronic Medical Records

Electronic Medical Records Connect to Care

The Cerner® electronic medical record system, an integrated database that provides a comprehensive set of capabilities, is used in all three acute care hospitals of the Central Maine Healthcare. The EMR System supports many applications for inpatient care, emergency care, medical imaging, pharmacy and computerized provider order entry (CPOE).

CMH has worked to individualize the electronic patient record system to help our healthcare professionals document the care of our patients according to our particular work-flow processes.

The electronic record system was named "ERNE"--"Electronic Enterprise Now Electronic". The system allows us to electronically store, capture and access patient health information in many patient care settings. The EMR System provides real-time access to patient results and clinical information across care disciplines. The ERNE record system also enables our healthcare organization to meet requirements for patient confidentiality and access patient information securely and conveniently by the care team.
