Truman Medical, Cerner develop new software to combat opioid addiction
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A big joint announcement from Truman Medical Centers and Cerner this week: The two have developed new software to help doctors and nurses potentially save people from becoming opioid addicts.
A few years ago, Cerner came up with similar software to combat sepsis, a potentially fatal blood infection. The electronic health record company estimates that technology saved about 5,000 lives once it started giving it away to its clients.
