Is Epic similar to Cerner?


Electronic health record (EHR) platforms are forging new partnerships for integrations that make the growing use of telehealth more effective for patients, physicians and payers.

Video conferencing platform Zoom has announced that it has invited health information technology provider Cerner to participate in a beta test in which physicians and clinicians can easily access a patient’s EHR during a telehealth visit, which could lead to improved outcomes.

The Zoom-Cerner integration promises features ranging from notifications to easy access to records to a secure linking system that allows more to be done and documented during telehealth sessions.

Walmart Health & Wellness executive vice president , Dr. Cheryl Pegus, said in a statement, “The Epic system complements our omnichannel health offering, enabling customers and healthcare professionals to access care and health records for more personalized care.”

Moreover, the genius operation itself could collapse and fail to deliver the expected results.  EPIC, Cerner’s big rival, already has significant hyperscale alliances with the likes of AWS. Its position is, on paper, much stronger than Oracle’s: it would be joining the respective leaders in their markets, compared to Cerner’s second place and Oracle’s fifth place among cloud providers (not counting the Asian giants in the equation). In addition, everything depends on the migration of these health records to the cloud, something that may not happen with the speed or intensity that Ellison and his team expect.Follow the topics that interest you
