Pros: Cerner is an easy to use software for medication order processing on the inpatient pharmacy management side. The software is customizable to each institution but easy enough to use across the board. It includes built in drug interactions check and can be used to generate all kinds of medication use reports. Drug duplications and dose range checking alerts are also a key component of this software. Patient's EHR is an easy click away from patient's medication profile in Medication Manager.

Cons: Refresh time can lag, especially when there are many orders coming in at the same time.

Easy, User friendly system for dispense and administration when used with PPID.

Pros: We like the inventory portion, its easy to maintain and change. The dispense with this system is very integrated, it updates throughout PowerChart. User friendly and easy for new users to pick up on.

Cons: Downtime orders can sometimes be difficult to get in. The mass amount after a dowtime sometimes takes a minute to update properly.

Overall: User friendly Pharmacy software. Easy dispense, and easy inventory. Quick to learn and pick up. Highly recommend.

Pros: Cerner's pharmacy management system Meds Manager and associated programs offers a fairly comprehensive suite of applications to accomplish pharmacy related tasks. Tasks such as entering allergies and patient measurements is accomplished easily in addition to viewing labs, interventions and crediting charges. Order verification is fairly efficient with the ability to adjust calculated dosages and add interventions during entry.

Cons: There are several challenges associated with Cerner's pharmacy management systems. One of these challenges is adequate descriptions of medications while looking at medications in Meds Manager. Some medications, particularly combination meds, will appear with a dose described by unit (e.g. 1 tab) rather than as the actual dosage. Scheduling can also be challenging and may require re-entry by the pharmacist depending on how the initial order was entered and when previous doses of the medication were given.

Overall: Overall, Cerner pharmacy management systems provides a comprehensive suite of apps and services that allows moderately fast learning and allows most useful tasks to be performed on one location.

Pros: Ease of use. Windows-based.

Cons: Downtime

Overall: I used this system when I worked for a hospital in Baltimore, MD. I found it very easy to use as it is windows-based. I am not sure of the value for the money, but I know that there were no major issues with the system. Downtimes were the only major issue and they did not occur frequently.

Pros: Cerner is fairly easy to navigate. The user controls are fairly simple. The ability to see where the patient is located is a plus.

Cons: Sometimes it crashes and will freeze. When this happens it usually stays frozen and I have to completely shut the system down.

Pros: Customer support answers quick and can help with alot of easy issues.

Cons: antiquated feel and features. Have yet to have an update not problematic. Our fax servers goes down constantly, for over 3 months at one time. Our labor costs have gone up as a result of this system. Poor auxiliary labels

Overall: This system has increased labor costs. Just not efficient or good enough to recommend.

Comments: Prone to errors. Tons of auto populated info goes on to script. No ability to clean up profile from the pharmacist screen. And terrible, terrible customer service.
