County hospital to get new health information system

The San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday voted 4-0 to approve a $37.3 million contract with Cerner Corporation of Kansas City for a new health information system at San Joaquin General Hospital. Hospital Chief Executive Officer David Culberson said system installation is expected to begin in February with it targeted to be online by summer 2017. While the current system works, Culberson said hospital technology staff must constantly reboot or update programs.
