Reflections on Cerner Developer Conference

07 Jun 2013

Our company just wrapped up its third annual developer conference in Kansas City with nearly 2,500 people in attendance. A number of technology companies have already been doing this sort of thing for many years, but in the healthcare IT industry, such events are relatively infrequent or unheard of. A significant cultural shift within our engineering group that occurred more than a decade ago led to a grassroots creation of this annual event. Cerner is one of the few, if not only, longstanding healthcare software companies actively pushing traditional boundaries in an industry ripe for innovation.
