Announcing The New Cerner Special Interest Group (SIG)

SUG Inc. would like to announce that we have established a new special interest group (SIG) for Cerner HIS users. This SIG leverages your voice and Sunquest’s industry connections by working with Cerner to address the issues Sunquest clients are facing with connectivity and interoperability between the systems.

Bakul Thakkar, from site UIC, is the Cerner SIG Chair, and Megan Smith, from site IHC, is Vice Chair.  They will be adding SIG call dates to the SUG Inc. calendar very soon! If you are interested in joining the Cerner SIG and you are already a member of SUG Inc., sign up to receive notifications about the Cerner SIG with these easy steps:

1. Log into SUG Inc. at
2. Click on the My Profile tab
3. Click Edit Profile
4. Scroll to the bottom & click the checkbox for the Cerner SIG.

Keep in mind, there is also a newly-created Cerner listserv forum available.  While you do not need to be a member of SUG Inc. to subscribe to the Cerner listserv, it is recommended for added support.

So whether your site already has Cerner HIS, or is considering it, please come join us at the Cerner SIG!

Remember, in order to participate in any SIG, your site must be a SUG Inc. member. Interested in becoming a member of SUG Inc.? Check out my previous blog:
