As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, we are all defining and adapting to a new normal in many facets of our lives.

At Cerner, we continue to serve the health care heroes on the frontlines with critical technology infrastructure that enables them to respond to and recover from COVID-19. We have been and remain aligned with guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization and other global public health agencies to protect the health and wellness of our associates.

We continue to implement new guidance and evaluate operations while advancing Cerner’s important mission – to relentlessly seek breakthrough innovation that will shape the health care of tomorrow.

This includes moving to virtual and digital options for mass gatherings, both Cerner-initiated events like our annual Cerner Health Conference, as well as industry conferences. These challenging times provide opportunities for us all to define new ways of working together, collaborating and learning from one another.

As the situation evolves and we plan our transition back from virtual to in-person forums, we will consider all relevant factors – travel availability, local guidance on gathering sizes, advancements in COVID-19 vaccinations and therapeutics and other important elements.

Our top priority remains an unwavering focus on the health and safety of our associates, clients and the communities where we live and work.

While it may be some time before we return to more traditional, in-person methods for sharing ideas, we at Cerner remain committed to ensuring that technology and innovation continues – virtually, for now, but no less impactful than ever.
