Let’s Get Started
Cerner Go Live Preparation
At the beginning of this process, your team—perhaps consisting of in-house IT staff and expert consultants sourced from HealthTECH—will determine the project’s scope, set objectives, create budgets, and formulate timelines. These will serve as the foundation of your Cerner project with each step taken intended to contribute to them and fit within parameters. Process and workflow analyses will then provide guidance as Cerner professionals configure and customize the application for your specific needs.
Before going live with the Cerner software, your team should check off punch list items to fully leverage the healthcare application, including:
- Implementation, integration, and optimization
- Data cleaning, validation, and migration
- Process documentation
- Training sessions
- Change management initiatives
- Any other elements unique to your facilities
As the go live transition nears, experienced consultants from the HealthTECH network can gather input from stakeholders in your facilities and obtain feedback from staff members who work in diverse roles. Using that feedback, they’ll strategically navigate the EHR transition so that financial benefits and application effectiveness are maximized.
Their expertise, both broad and application-specific, allows your healthcare facilities to avoid potential pitfalls, create workarounds, and minimize the impact of any issues. They’ll test data cleanliness and accessibility and the Cerner setup; make sure the application is properly configured; ensure that training is completed and support systems are ready; and handle any final punch list items.
Less seasoned consultants wouldn’t have as much experience to fall back on, which can complicate the process, cause frustration, lead to missed deadlines, and create extra expenses.

Cerner Go Live FAQs
As your healthcare facilities switch their EHR systems, end users will be managing their workflows through new technologies—and, no matter how much training takes place, working with an application in a live environment creates new situations and raises questions. Cerner go live support allows them to have easy access to information they need to provide quality patient care.
When you decide to use Cerner as your EHR application, your healthcare facility can ask about support services offered by the software provider.
Because the platform is extendable, though, your facilities have likely customized extensions to reduce costs, improve patient care and education, and meet business needs and workflows. It will be incredibly beneficial for your staff to have go live support for your specific application and all of its modifications and customizations, and HealthTECH provides facilities like yours with professionals that offer exactly that.
As an example, some organizations like to train members of their in-house IT staff as Cerner “super users.” They receive specialized, more in-depth training, which can be provided by our Cerner experts; then, these super users serve as points of contact for your staff. When more support is needed, professionals provided by HealthTECH can offer even more enhanced services.
When literally referring to the cutover, the process is not typically lengthy since, technically speaking, healthcare facilities simply switch from using one EMR/EHR application to the Cerner software. The process that leads up to this process, though, can last anywhere from several months to a couple of years. How long yours would take would depend upon the project’s complexity and whether you’re switching the entire system over all at once or through carefully planned stages. With the second structure, you may, as just two examples, decide to cut over by department or user type.
The all-in approach will likely require a lesser amount of time for support services while, with a phased approach, personalized support can be strategically offered for each step. No matter how you plan to handle your Cerner go live, HealthTECH can provide you with the professionals you need. They can guide you through making key decisions, crafting the right approach for your budget, timeline, and care environment, and more.
