Amazon Cloud Partnership Drives Cerner’s Shift to Digital Platform Company

September 18, 2020

Cerner announced a partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) one year ago. Cerner plans to leverage Amazon’s artificial intelligence capabilities and customer experience expertise to drive future growth for its health IT business. The linkage with Amazon includes moving many of Cerner’s solutions to the public cloud. Most importantly, the partnership is driving Cerner’s transition from being an EHR-focused company to a digital platform organization.

“Moving forward, I think Cerner will look more like a health platform company and less like an EHR company. As you play out the trend in healthcare, I see Cerner very much operating at the health network level, so beyond the enterprise of a single health system. Given the power of the cloud and the work we’re doing, I see Cerner having much more relevance into broader networks and providing nationwide capabilities,” said Dan Devers, Cerner’s senior vice president of cloud strategy.
