  1. So Brent Shafer has accomplished what during his time as CEO? Decimated all the upper level management with his cronies who now need replaced, made all the good worker bees leave by withholding raises and layoffs, lost some huge clients while not making many new sales, underperformed for the shareholders with regards to the stock price, not made any progress on meeting existing promises to clients, not made any progress on new markets. I think Brent’s Cerner legacy is that he made life moderately worse for everyone involved except his pocketbook, but at least he didn’t implode the company.

    • You also left out continued delays and budget overruns for the DOD/VA project, I believe there are more Congressional hearings coming up about that? I look at the US market and see the start of a long slow death spiral for Cerner. They’ll hang around for a while by virtue of the government contract they won, and as some of their remaining hospital clients help them cling to life, but it seems Epic is on a clear path to an even larger monopoly. Cerner will continue to have some success internationally and through niche products, but I think in 10-15 years they will be a shell of their current operation.
