A new report from KLAS compares the performance, usability, and mindshare of more than a dozen Cerner and Siemens HIT software and services offerings. This, as providers around the world consider how Cerner's acquisition of Siemens might affect them.
"The question on everyone's mind is what this acquisition will mean to providers, not just Siemens customers, but Cerner customers as well," says Coray Tate, KLAS vice president of clinical research. "One of the things we wanted to look at is how each vendor performs coming into the acquisition. In addition, Cerner faces many decisions on how to best leverage the two company's offerings. There are a lot of options and decisions to be made on both sides of this acquisition."
This report includes data from hundreds of providers both domestically and around the world, who are using either Cerner or Siemens HIT solutions.
