In reading the press release all terms appear to be confidential so all I can assume is that some kind of licensing was perhaps attained with a dollar value. Being around as long as they have I’m sure Cerner has a number of patents as well when it comes to intellectual property with the size of company they are such as their CareAware FDA approved systems for one example.
Just recently Walgreens settled with MMRGlobal and there’s a few more out there yet like Allscripts and WebMD that have been given patent infringement notices. The Walgreens agreement was interesting as it also had Drugstore.com, a division of the company to begin marketing and selling MyMedicalRecords, the PHR from MMRGlobal. BD
