The HCI Group Cerner Support Desk

Cerner Service Desk Support 

Cerner support that extends from the implementation to the service desk resulting in improved ongoing support.

The HCI Cerner Support Solution is focused on the providing clients with solutions that create value and reduce the operational support cost associated with maintaining and supporting Cerner. This is achieved through a blend of Advisory Services, certified and experienced Cerner Analysts, Business Intelligence (BI), Data Analytics, Continual Process Improvement (CPI), Clinical Service Desk (CSD), and Executive oversight.

HCI is uniquely positioned to offer a dedicated, holistic turn-key solution for Cerner clients  that extends from the Cerner implementation through to Go-Live and then support post Go-Live via the Cerner CLinical Service Desk resulting in improved ongoing support and client satisfaction.

The key attributes that differentiate the HCI Cerner Support Model include:

  • Experienced Cerner Analysts – Knowledge and experience is the key. As part of HCI’s Cerner Support Desk, analysts are engaged to resolve tickets versus simply catching and dispatching to the client’s Tier 2 Cerner analysts. This results in a lower open-to-close time, thus improving end-user productivity and satisfaction.

  • Reduction in Cerner Ticket Volume – Unlike other market solutions, HCI does not advocate a per ticket pricing model. Through Problem Management and Root Cause Analysis (RCA), HCI partners with the client to both prevent tickets from being originated as well as resolving tickets at the lowest level of support. Through this approach, HCI has consistently demonstrated the ability to reduce incoming ticket volume.

  • BI & Data Analytics – Visibility across the support spectrum is crucial to lowering support costs. As such, HCI provides an interactive dashboard that takes into account the entire support team (HCI and Client). With visibility into labor distribution, clients are armed with the productivity measures required to make and measure management decisions. Secondly, it is through robust BI and Data Analytics that Problem Management and RCA is achieved; which is often lacking within a standard IT Service Management (ITSM) toolset alone. Lastly, HCI mines and correlates the ticket data in search of training deficiencies and opportunities to close those gaps in the spirit of the common goal to reduce ticket volume.

  • Continual Process Improvement – Through an ITIL framework for ITSM, HCI takes a complete look at the support model from an end-to-end process versus being exclusively focused on just on the HCI delivery of a Cerner Service Desk. With an eye toward continuously strengthening the processes and taking a collaborative approach with its clients, HCI has proven to be able to move to the proverbial needles for ticket and backlog reduction, SLA adherence, open-to-close time, and a shift from incident and maintenance to that of enhancement opportunity.

  • Client Engagement Manager (CEM) – A dedicated CEM is assigned for the day-to-day management of service delivery and operations. The CEM is backed by the HCI Sustain management team with clearly defined escalation paths. This undiluted focus is what allows for the delivery of outstanding service and more importantly, results. Here are some of the results one Service Desk client achieved in under 9 months:

"HCI has been an outstanding partner for UCSF. They have taken the time to truly understand our organization's needs & culture to design the right solution. We have found them to "think out of the box" as we focused on refining our sustaining support model while creatively infusing ITIL principles into the framework."
