PharmNet, Cerner's pharmacy system, automates the clinical and departmental pharmacy processes and provides the foundation for a closed-loop medication administration process across the care continuum.

PharmNet is built on the unified Cerner Millennium architecture. This allows organizations to streamline the medication administration process. The system also links pharmacists, nurses, and physicians from the time caregivers order medication through its administration, ensuring efficiency, continuity, and safety. Pharmacists have the ability to access patient information, monitor patients around the clock with knowledge-driven alerts, share information directly with other caregivers, and provide a continuous pathway for patient care delivery.

Other key features include integrated clinical information at the point of clinical decision making and integration with Cerner's eMAR (electronic medication administration record). In addition, PharmNet connects to legacy systems, robotic and barcoding devices, medication dispensing systems, and total parenteral nutrition (TPN) compounders.
