Recent M&A Activities

On February 2, 2015, Cerner Corp. announced the completion of its acquisition of Siemens Health Services’ assets, client relationships and associates. The early focus of the alliance is on integrating diagnostics and therapeutics into the electronic health record (EHR).

Rumors are that Cerner may be looking at acquiring one of the health care industry’s fastest-growing companies, Athenahealth.

On the other hand, IBM may be potentially looking at acquiring Cerner, even though the likelihood of a potential deal comes down to both timing and how much IBM would be willing to pay.

Market News

According to a recent KLAS report on Small Practice Ambulatory EMR/PM market, Athenahealth and Cerner have stumbled significantly over the past two years. These formerly top performing vendors now sit squarely in the middle of the pack. The performance of former Best in KLAS winner Cerner has tumbled appreciably in the past two years, and user satisfaction is now below average. Complicated usability, poor training, and pricing issues have left some small providers questioning whether Cerner was the right choice.
