Encompass Health Corp. | June 21, 2022
Leading integrated health services provider, Encompass Health celebrated the launch of its 150th hospital focusing on post-acute inpatient rehabilitation. The hospital is located in Jacksonville, Florida and has an electronic health record system (EHR) by the Oracle Cerner Corporation.
Encompass Health has a large network of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals that implement the HER. The provider partnered with Oracle Cerner to deploy the technology across its network.
"Having a standardized EHR and deployment strategy across all our hospitals has increased our ability to successfully complete and integrate developments, acquisitions, investments and joint ventures consistent with our growth strategy, including realization of anticipated revenues, cost savings and productivity improvements.”

After a successful pilot, Encompass rolled out a network wide implementation of the system. The technology transformed the hospital network’s system from a paper-based platform to a digital workflow and electronic system.
"Our focus at Oracle Cerner is helping to solve ongoing challenges in healthcare, including building more reliable, intuitive, and useful tools to reduce complexity and help improve the caregiver and patient experience. Supporting Encompass Health in implementing Oracle Cerner technology across all its hospitals, ensures clinicians can work at any of their facilities without needing to relearn systems and workflows – giving them more time to focus on great patient care."
