This team is made up of health informatics professionals and support staff from across VCH, PHSA and PHC.

Core is responsible for the foundational components of the Cerner build. The clinical design teams are dependent on these foundational components to facilitate and support them in building their own modules within the new clinical information system.

While Core is responsible for building the foundational components, other teams are responsible for the majority of the design, including design teams, technical teams and business areas within VCH, PHSA and PHC (e.g. finance). Core components are traditionally non-specific, which allows these configurations to encompass virtually all Cerner solutions enterprise-wide. Some Core build responsibilities include: Organizations and Locations, Alias Pools, Positions and Security, Provider Load, and the Event Set Hierarchy.
