Early feedback for Cerner's patient portal suggests good functionality and integration to Cerner outpatient and inpatient EMRs. Its most-offered features are patient clinical records, patient scheduling, and provider messaging. Cerner's portal was also most considered for future rollout, according to the report. However, the report showed that more providers are considering Cerner's portal than are actually using it. While early feedback from Cerner users is positive, the primary driver to Cerner is the single-vendor strategy. One respondent said, "Our strategy has been if Cerner has it, we will use it. If not, we will go elsewhere...I had the money budgeted, and it was more natural to go that way."
