Cerner Corporation (Nasdaq: CERN) today announced results for the 2018 second quarter that ended June 30, 2018.
Cerner, a global leader in health care technology, and Lumeris, an award-winning health plan and value-based care managed services operator, today announced a 10-year relationship aimed at eliminating inefficiencies in the current health care system. Under the relationship, the parties will launch a new offering, Maestro Advantage, for value-based arrangements, including Medicare Advantage (MA) and provider-sponsored health plans (PSHPs).
In today's rapidly changing health care landscape, it's more important than ever to be up to date on industry advances, current legislation and fundamental shifts in care deliver. With each issue of Perspectives , we bring together the leading voices in health care to explore how the industry is leveraging new technology innovations, facing health care challenges head-on and preparing for a smarter health care future.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has announced an agreement with Cerner to use off-the-shelf Cerner solutions to provide veterans, transitioning service members and their care providers access to their medical history through a single electronic health record (EHR) system.
“We’re in the middle of an incredible moment in the health care industry, where expectations and standards are shifting.” That statement was part of the opening remarks from Cerner’s Senior Vice President of Population Health John Glaser at the 2017 Cerner Health Conference. His position was a strong one: The industry, he says, is shifting from reactive sick care to proactive health management, from fragmented niche care to a cross-continuum care system and from reward for volume to reward for quality, efficiency and safety.
The Department of Veterans Affairs announced its decision to modernize its existing health records platform by choosing Cerner’s commercial off-the-shelf Millennium EHR solution.
It’s no mystery that the cost and performance of workplace health programs continue to challenge employers. Organizations that use data to help drive their workplace health strategy could have an advantage in lowering costs and improving the well-being of their employees.
Of the 75 women recognized on Health Data Management’s list of the 2017 Most Powerful Women in Healthcare IT, 34 were health IT (HIT) executives working at provider organizations.

And which executives should take on that parental role and be genuine “chiefs,” with a place in the C-suite and a voice in governance?
