Cerner/Siemens merger is big news!!


Well, I was surprised on this one but I’m probably not the one “in the know” on deals such as this – but Cerner & Siemens $1.3 billion merger occurred last week. And I know that everyone from employees to users of the separate companies’ products to the whole HIT world are waiting to see what happens next. The article interviews John Glaser of Siemens and surprised me by noting that the merger has been a bit on the brains of the executives for quite some time – since 2010. Could this bring the two companies together and put them back in a powerhouse position? Guess we’ll have to wait and see. But honestly, with IT products, unless they have been working on programming since 2010, they don’t move that quickly.

Any thoughts from the audience?
