What is Cerner Health?
Cerner Health is a Personal Health Record (PHR) that provides you with a secure way to collect, manage, and share your health-related information. Cerner Health allows you to share your health information with family members, doctors, other members of your care team, as well as a growing number of health, wellness, and condition management programs.

What is a Cerner Health account?
A Cerner Health account is a secure account on the internet that allows you to access your Cerner Health PHR and a family of solutions that allow you to actively engage in your health. Participation in Cerner Health is currently by invitation only. You must be invited by a health care organization, such as your doctor's office. The email invitation sent to you has a link to a page where you can create a secure account and get access to your data at your health care organization.
Cerner Health works hand-in-hand with MyAdventistHealth to provide a secure login and share your health-related information. In addition to information that you add or upload, you can receive and store electronic visit and care documentation from your doctors and hospitals.
What information is exchanged between Cerner Health and MyAdventistHealth?
