I had a feeling about this one after the pathology contract and the DoD's desire for everything to work across their platforms.
VERY excited to watch the market today!!!
Yeah I just noticed that! I logged onto Yahoo Finance and was like "WOA cerner up 7%, there MUST have been a leak of some good news!"
Keep your eyes out everyone, the DOD is expected to announce the results of the Electronic Health Records contract by end of week. This article shows it:
Also talks about how "inter-operability" is going to be a big decider - the ability to communicate across platforms.
Since Cerner already won the "Pathology Lab Contract," that could be a good sign that they will get selected for the EHR contract. As it would give the DOD inherent "interoperability"
Just my two cents, keep your eyes out for the news.
This person is correct. The Pathology Lab is a million-something dollar contract. The EHR Contact is an $11 Billion dollar contract. Or 1/3 of the current markcap of CERN.
It's supposed to be decided this summer... it will be like in Christmas in July if it works out!
What are you talking about? They just got that contract less than two weeks ago.. and they aren't losing it any time soon. $100 by September.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
