WMMC and Cerner Partner for Virtual Visits

Warrensburg, MO (February 24, 2021)—Western Missouri Medical Center (WMMC) has transitioned virtual visits to the Cerner CommunityWorks platform in January. This platform will offer more seamless virtual visits to patients and providers, plus the ability to receive medical care from the comfort of the patient’s home.

The only change for patients will be that virtual visits are accessible through the WMMC Patient Portal. Many appointments are eligible and covered by insurance, but not all visits are applicable for virtual visits based on the provider and medical care needed. Talk to your provider to see if your medical need is eligible for virtual visits.

The transition would not be possible without Cerner’s generous offer to provide rural hospitals with the platform during 2021. This free trial through 2021 will enable WMMC to provide a secure form of communication to patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We recognize the financial burden some healthcare systems are facing because of the pandemic,” states Mitchell Clark, president of Cerner CommunityWorks. “We wanted to offer a native video visit platform for CommunityWorks clients free of charge through 2021 as a way to help providers and patients connect during this difficult time.”

WMMC wants to thank Cerner for providing a safe means of communication through this pandemic. The virtual visit platform will allow us to provide uninterrupted care to all our patients. Visit WMMC.com/Virtual to schedule your virtual visit today.
