Cerner’s goal is to deliver more than software and solutions. The company is expanding its historical focus on electronic medical records (EMR) to help improve health and care across the board. Cerner aims to assimilate and normalize the world's healthcare data
in order to reduce cost and increase efficiency of delivering healthcare, while improving patient outcomes.
The firm is accomplishing this by building a comprehensive view of population health on a Big Data platform that’s powered by a Cloudera enterprise data hub (EDH).
