Does Cerner provide a "superuser" account for my app to access EMR records for pertinent  I have properly identified?

Hi Boris,

We offer several ways for applications to authenticate. If your application does not have a user present, then the app would likely use access on behalf of a system. All methods rely on the OAuth 2 specification. 

Note: If an app utilizes system level access, all HIPAA/Meaningful Use auditing and privacy/sensitive data filtering would be the apps responsibility, assuming a user eventually sees the data within a separate system.

See details on the types of authentication/authorization available here: and
