  1. Any idea how many of those Cerner sales were Sorian to Cerner conversions? Or was that the number you pointed out as add-ons to existing customers? Curious what the real Sorian conversion rate is.

  2. Re: Commonwell (by way of Ex Epic)

    So, 29,360ish Cerner-using facilities have the capability of sharing clinical documents with clients of every top, willing and able EHR in the industry? That’s a pretty amazing stat.

  3. That image says “documents exchanged” so while amazing, not in a good way. I wasn’t on the Care Everywhere team so I’d be guessing, but I’d estimate epic customers hit the 30,000 document milestone in about 2008. Only counting outside Epic, maybe 2009.
