Cerner Government Advisory Board

Cerner understands we cannot solve health care challenges for federal agencies alone. It will take collaboration with outside experts and influencers to enhance Cerner’s experience and help us develop leading-edge solutions and innovations.

Cerner Government Services has established a diverse group of experts and thought leaders under the Cerner Government Advisory Board to provide direction on development, sustainment and outreach within the federal government, health care industry, Veteran and military communities, and service organizations.
