Cerner Ccl

Cerner Command Language (CCL) is a programming language for developing reports in the Cerner Millennium healthcare platform. It's designed to work with database queries and encourages developers to use commands that can be executed directly on the database server without having to retrieve large amounts of raw data. CCL lets users create complex reports by accessing patient records, financial transactions, and other relevant information in a structured manner. Its syntax borrows from SQL while offering additional constructs for handling medical data elements specific to electronic health record systems.
