Solve your Clinical EHR Workflow Problems
The clinician-designed Core Workflow Suite was created with the insight that it takes a team to manage a patient, and that all specialties have unique data workflow needs. CORES clinical workflow apps directly embed in Cerner MPages, transforming your existing EHR into a secure, easy-to-use, clinical communication and collaboration hub.
Workflows are intuitively organized and visually presented in formats unique to each specialty’s priorities. This ensures that rich, actionable patient data is accessible as needed. Without having to search for and replicate data for rounding, hand offs, and to make care decisions, team-based patient care is simplified, more efficient and less frustrating.
Learn why physicians, frustrated with their EHR experience, transformed the EHR into what you always imagined it could be.
Discover how caregivers like you are using Cores to close EHR functionality gaps and deliver more informed, streamlined care.

Question Does the UW-IPASS standardized handoff affect clinician communication in the intensive care unit?
Findings In this single-institution cluster randomized stepped-wedge clinical trial, the use of a standardized handoff curriculum resulted in a significant 3% decrease in communication errors, without any change in the duration of the handoff. Seventy-three percent of clinicians reported that participation in the curriculum improved team communication and patient safety.
Purpose. To determine whether changing sign-out practices and decreasing the time spent in rounding and recopying patient data affect patient safety. Responding to limited resident duty hours, the University of Washington launched a computerized rounding and sign-out system (“UW Cores”). The system shortened duty hours by facilitating signout, decreasing rounding time, and sharply reducing the time spent in prerounds data recopying.
Background. Hospital-based clinicians and educators face a difficult challenge trying to simultaneously improve measurable quality, educate residents in line with ACGME core competencies, while also attending to fiscal concerns such as hospital length of stay (LOS).
Background. Adoption of limits on resident work hours prompted us to develop a centralized, Web-based computerized rounding and sign-out system (UWCores) that securely stores sign-out information; automatically downloads patient data (vital signs, laboratories); and prints them to rounding, sign-out, and progress note templates. We tested the hypothesis that this tool would positively impact continuity of care and resident workflow by improving team communication involving patient handovers and streamlining inefficiencies, such as hand-copying patient data during work before rounds (“prerounds”).
Background. The problem of safe and efficient transfer of care has increased over the years as new and complex diagnostic tools and more complex treatment options became available. Traditionally, residents ensured continuity of care by working long hours and minimizing the transfer of significant diagnostic or therapeutic responsibilities to other providers. The new 80-hour workweek has curtailed that practice and increased the pressure on trainees for workflow efficiency. We report on a study of informationhandling routines among residents for the separate tasks of transfer of care (‘‘sign-out’’) and daily patient care work (ward work). Using these results, an institution-wide computerized system was developed to centralize information-handling tasks and facilitate the management and transfer of patient care information.
Physicians, clients, and others demonstrate how to rapidly transform your EHR experience.
TransformativeMed, the EHR innovator using embedded workflows to empower clinical care and collaboration, announced today that MedStar Health has renewed its long-term Core Workflow Suite contract and signed on as an innovation partner to usher in the next wave of mobile EHR workflow innovations.
SEATTLE, June 5, 2019-- TransformativeMed, the leader in empowering clinical communication and collaboration with EHR-embedded workflows, announced today that health industry veteran Greg Miller has joined the company as Chief Growth Officer, and former health system CEO John Koster, MD, has joined the Board of Directors.
TransformativeMed, the leader in redefining how clinicians communicate and collaborate using EHR-embedded workflows, today announced that it has closed a $5.8M Series A financing round led by the Alliance of Angels.
TransformativeMed, the leader in redefining how clinicians communicate and collaborate using EHR-embedded workflows, today announced that EvergreenHealth has signed a multi-year contract for GlycemiCare™, a CORE Value Suite app that standardizes and streamlines EHR workflows for complex conditions like diabetes.
SEATTLE, March 18, 2019-- TransformativeMed, the first to directly embed specialized clinical workflows into the EHR to enhance usability, efficiency and renew the joy of patient care, today announced that Mercy Medical Center-Des Moines, has signed a multi-year contract for GlycemiCare™, a CORE Value Suite app that standardizes and streamlines EHR workflows for diabetes management.
In his acceptance speech TransformativeMed President Doug Cusick stated, “Last year the Association of American Medical Colleges reported that the US could see a shortage of up to 120,000 physicians by 2030. This will impact patient care across the nation.
In the article titled, “Innovation to Address Physician Burnout”, Signify Research and Digital Health Analyst Alex Green highlighted a major theme at the 2019 HIMSS conference: “Poor UI, long-winded data entry procedures, workflow tools that don’t speed up processes but slow them down, …”
An estimated 99 percent of US hospitals now track patients’ health information using computerized records systems, many of which were installed to replaced paper medical charts. As a result, startups are rushing in to capitalize on the recent health-records digitization wave. Some of them, like Seattle-based TransformativeMed, are making the case that their add-on software products and services can improve doctors’ satisfaction with the technologies they use to do their jobs.
“Seattle startup TransformativeMed has a major beef with how health record systems work — or rather, don’t work for doctors. When the systems were designed, ‘the most expensive commodity in the process was forgotten — and that’s the doctor,’ said TransformativeMed CEO Doug Cusick. ‘No one gave a damn about the doctor.’ …”
A Seattle-based tech startup has raised $5.8 million in Series A funding in an effort to widen bottlenecks and smooth clinical workflows within hospitals. TransformativeMed is targeting the ways in which doctors communicate with one another, which traditionally center around messaging software that requires a complex and cumbersome interface to access a hospital’s electronic health records.
During his acceptance speech, TransformativeMed CEO Doug Cusick stated, “At TransformativeMed we believe improving patient care starts with giving physicians everything they need to create the best patient experience possible.”

In case you didn’t know David Stone, who led Cerner’s users through the wonderful early days of MPages development, he’s a genius. He and I were talking about interoperability in healthcare. He made me realize that today’s interoperability definition has a huge gap.
Clinician handoff improvement using the EHR-embedded app CORES was again proven in a clinical trial published January 3, 2018, in JAMA Surgery. Handoff quality is hard to measure, and this rigorously designed trial gets it right. The researchers used a cluster randomized, stepped-wedge clinical trial to test a handoff curriculum that used CORES to structure handoff information using the IPASS framework (IPASS Institute).
Events are a great opportunity to connect with clients and prospect one-to-one. At the Cerner Health Conference, we did just that. Here's a quick summary of what they said we are getting right.
I hadn’t been to a CHC conference for years. Wow, how things have changed, and for the better: International clients, presentations that span broadly and deeply into benefits clients have achieved, diversity, professionalism, excitement and energy, need I go on? It is easy to comprehend why Cerner has the largest footprint in total installations throughout the world.
Does this sound familiar? In most health systems patient handoffs are unstructured and variable across providers and departments. For most, this is very time-consuming and involves a large amount of manual data entry.
In a recent physician survey, more than half of 17,236 respondents said that the EHR has reduced or detracted from the efficiency of their practice.
Handoffs are an unavoidable reality for patients in hospitals. Yet every year, clinician miscommunication contributes to approximately one-third of serious inpatient medical errors, resulting in an estimated 250 000 preventable deaths annually in US hospitals.
40% of patients experience an insulin dosing error during their hospital stay, according to the 2017 National Diabetes Inpatient Audit. This constitutes a significant patient safety issue. Insulin can cause harm when used in error, and the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) has classified all forms of insulin (subcutaneous and IV) as high-alert medications.
