Cerner has been on a roll lately with news and it probably is due to a lot of announcements coming out at their big annual meeting. In addition to embedding the Pro-Vation software it was also announced that CareAware has a new mobile solution for smart phones. CareAware as you can read at the link below was approved by the FDA a couple years ago. This goes back to the original Cerner Smart Room where all the reporting devices are in one solution for easier access.
Also in the news was the acquisition of an automated lab testing technology.

In addition the Cerner Skybox healthcare cloud will be looking for a new home quickly as the cloud partner Nirvanix has filed bankruptcy and is closing down and clients have 2 weeks to get their data. IBM has a referral service listed on the site. As I read the private cloud is 3 petabytes in size, a lot of data to move.
Perhaps Oracle will pick the void with the cloud services as Open World just had a huge number of announcements and Cerner was there as a partner.
In 2011 Oracle implemented the Oracle Enterprise Manager to support managed services that included Skybox cloud offerings. BD
Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that it has partnered with Cerner Corporation to develop a dynamic clinical documentation solution. The solution will leverage evidence-based ProVation® Clinic Note content and clinical decision support which, when embedded with Cerner Millennium®, will guide physician documentation and capture critical information at the point of care.
ProVation Clinic Note provides custom content specifically designed for EMR vendors. When embedded in an EMR system, it allows clinicians to quickly and easily create robust, evidence-based, structured physician documentation for patient encounters. Offering thousands of topics covering more than 30 specialties, ProVation Clinic Note delivers content across multiple patient settings, including ambulatory, inpatient and the emergency department.
