Supported Devices

Desktop and laptop computers, tablets, and smartphones* are supported.

*If you use a Samsung device and have trouble entering dates or numbers, the default Samsung keyboard is likely the problem. The solution is to switch to a different keyboard.   

Supported Browsers

This patient portal is built on advanced modern technologies and does not support old browsers. It is strongly recommended that you use a supported browser to minimize potential security risks and ensure that you have the best possible portal experience. If you use an unsupported browser, some portal features may not work correctly. See the Minimum and Recommended System Requirements and End of Support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 Browser topics for more information. See Download a Supported Browser for more information on how to download a supported browser.

End of Support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 Browser

Microsoft is ending support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) in a phased approach beginning November 2020. (See the Microsoft announcement for IE 11.) As part of the announcement, Microsoft announced that its Microsoft 365 (M365) applications and services will no longer support IE 11 as of August 17, 2021.

The Microsoft end-of-life date for IE 11 in its entirety is later and tied directly to the life cycle of the Windows operating system. See Microsoft Product and Services Lifecycle FAQ to check the latest dates for your Windows 10 version.

Support for this portal on IE 11 ends July 1, 2021. You can still access the portal using IE 11, but some portal features may not work properly.   

Support for IE 11 by other Cerner browser-based products is unaffected by this portal announcement. The other products will continue to maintain browsers as previously communicated and documented.

Download a Supported Browser

It is recommended that you review the Minimum and Recommended System Requirements topic before you download a browser. See Download a Supported Browser for information on how to download a supported browser.
