Cerner seeks bigger share of the EHRM pie at VA

Excerpt taken from POLITICO, Morning eHealth, Cerner hires ex-VA exec, By ARTHUR ALLEN 07/17/2017

“Word is that Cerner hope to keep much of the VA contract for itself, avoiding the need to hire “integrators” such as Leidos and Accenture, Cerner’s partners in the Pentagon’s MHS Genesis contract.” Read More Here

G2X TAKE: The source for where this ”word” comes from is not identified here and, of course, it is natural for any publicly traded firm to want to capture as much revenue as possible, but any desire to cut out integrators will raise some concern with government contractors vying to support VA EHR modernization efforts.

With negotiations still in their infancy, we will have to wait and see how this plays out. There is zero chance that VA doesn’t have at least one key integrator in place, but Cerner clearly has an upper hand here and they will work to impact the scope of any effort in their favor.

As Politico also notes in the article above, Cerner only yesterday announced that they have hired former Veterans Health Administration Chief Information Strategy Officer, David Waltman, who brings experience working with two separate T4/NG primes and time spent with Microsoft. 

Good stuff by Politico. Worth the read.
