AQI Partners With Cerner

AQI is excited to announce our new partnership with Cerner.  Cerner is the first EMR to directly provide clinical data such as clinical timings and medications to AQI.  This is a great step in the direction of improvement for patient care, as this will now allow Cerner’s clients to benchmark their performance against their peers at the national, regional, and facility level. The creation of a Cerner reporting routine for AQI participants demonstrates their commitment to advancing quality improvement in anesthesiology.
