NEW Cerner Role for Clinical Research Coordinators

Mary Harmon, Alison Montpetit, and the Cerner team has developed a Cerner role that will give research coordinators the access needed as a researcher at VCUHS. Tickets have been placed with the Cerner team to have roles changed from All Retrieval Access to Care Coordinator EV. This allows coordinators to function more independently within the record. If you have a different role in Cerner, then it is unchanged.

You will be required to complete some Cerner training modules to learn about this role – they will be assigned in the learning exchange. You can access the learning exchange via this link:  https://vcu.ehealthcareit.us/vcu

Attached is a cheatsheet that Cerner provided which shows you how to create your relationship to the patient. When you open the chart, it will prompt you to identify your role. You will select Clinical Research Coordinator from the list. You should only need to do this once per patient chart.

Also, EPIC is coming which already has a clinical research section built. We are hoping that this will be a much “friendlier” application for all.
