Cerner Corporation, By the Numbers

Cerner Campus SignageCerner Corporation, by almost any measure, is on a roll.

The world’s largest publicly traded health information technology company recently announced record results for 2015—its best year ever in terms of bookings, revenue and new business.

Last year saw Cerner acquire a major rival, Siemens AG, and outbid another rival, Epic Systems, to win the coveted EHR contract for the U.S. Department of Defense. As if that weren’t enough, the company broke ground on a massive expansion of its headquarters and campus in Kansas City, Mo.
