When will Cerner and Infor training start?

If you haven’t been individually contacted regarding training, don’t panic.   Between January and April, only Cerner subject matter experts will be receiving training on Cerner.   More specifically, these staff members will be helping to build and validate the Cerner Millennium system at special sessions held in Kansas City at Cerner’s headquarters.  As for Infor Lawson, the building and testing of this system has been underway at TRHS since the beginning of January. 

For now, clinical managers are asked to identify a Cerner super user in each clinical department.   These individuals will receive special training in August which will enable them to assist teams during the activation phase by answering questions, troubleshooting problems and helping resolve issues regarding the new technology.  The training for super users will occur in August and information will be distributed once the specific days and times are finalized.
