Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center reduces transcription costs 70%, drives EHR adoption.

Navicent Health Success Story

Company profile

One of the top health systems in the U.S., Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center (AIMMC) is a 408- bed hospital in Chicago with a Level I trauma center and a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, with nearly 900 physicians, 300 residents and 700 nurses using Cerner Millennium®.

When a Joint Commission site visit revealed indecipherable and incomplete documentation in its GI and surgery departments—illegible documentation, missing signatures, dates and time stamps—AIMMC chose PowerNote®, part of the Cerner Millennium EHR, to fix things.

AIMMC was the first Advocate site to mandate the use of the EMR for physicians, all because we had a Dragon/PowerNote strategy.
