  1. Will this Cerner dust up with the DoD now give us a real granular discussion on a national level as to what Interoperability really means as far as how much is exchanged, degree of exchange and access, and who is responsible for it ($$$$ from vendors or hospitals paying for the infastructure)? More realistically will it force Cerner deeper in to a “commitment” to the Commonwell Health Alliance? Commitment in quotes means a lot of things. Really publicizing how well (and how much) it shares between itself and the other vendors and Epic? Having to commit more resources to it including education and architecture for their customers and hospitals using other vendors. Perhaps how Cerner has to address this could chip away at the conventional wisdom that eventually you will have to be on either Epic or Cerner.
