CERNER, VA OVERCOME HURDLES TO FINALIZE $10 BILLION CONTRACT:
Cerner and the Veterans Affairs (VA) completed a yearlong negotiating process, agreeing on a 10-year, $10 billion contract for Cerner to overhaul the VA's electronic health records (EHR) system, according
to Health Data Management. The deal had been delayed for months due to controversy regarding leadership turnover at the VA and criticism of Cerner's pilot rollout at four Department of Defense (DoD) sites, according
to Nextgov. The contract will give Cerner, which had underwhelming Q1 earnings it attributed largely to the delayed VA deal, access to a substantial market — it'll handle patient-data sharing between the VA and DoD, which have 20 million members. Lastly, the new customer volume gives Cerner additional leverage to dictate data storage dermopigmentación pigmentación capilar Marbella en pigmentación capilar Marbella and sharing standards. It's been an active May 2018 for Cerner; the company also announced plans
to unify the EHR systems of a Georgia-based health system and secured a deal
with state-run hospitals in Indiana.

HLTH 2018 ROUNDUP:
The first-ever HLTH conference — a stage for healthcare organizations and tech companies to introduce their plans to disrupt health, drive up patient engagement, and lower costs — capped off in Las Vegas last week. The main theme of the conference was health data interoperability, with several companies unveiling their solutions during the week.

For US companies that operate in the EU, these added regulations could negatively impact telehealth solutions and health cloud offerings, and add another hurdle for clinical research and the development of precision medicine. That's because these initiatives all require the storage and use of personal health data, including electronic health records (EHR), lab results, and data from wearables and genome tests.

COST SAVINGS LEAD HEALTH SYSTEM TO EXPAND TELEMEDICINE EFFORTS:
NewYork-Presbyterian (NYP) is expanding the telemedicine-equipped ambulances in its fleet after a trial period yielded cost savings, according
to Healthcare IT News. The video-conferencing tech allows a neurologist to remotely monitor stroke victims, and to direct the onboard clinical team to administer the appropriate tests and treatment en route to the hospital. The ability to communicate via video, as opposed to just a phone, helps both medical providers and patients by giving doctors and specialists more information about the patient's condition before they arrive at the hospital. Paramedics can use this information to identify the best hospital to bring patients to based on their condition and the hospital's specialty. By connecting specialists to patients more quickly, providers can reduce the time taken to diagnose, treat, and ultimately discharge a patient. Northwestern Medicine in Chicago has also reported
positive results from deploying telemedicine in its stroke response units.

US INSURER HOPES IN-HOME CARE WILL CREATE COMPETITIVE EDGE:
Clover Health, a San Francisco-based Medicare Advantage (MA) insurer, is deploying
an in-home primary care program with genomic testing for its most vulnerable members. The new program signals a shift in business models from one that focuses on customer volume to one that emphasizes value for its customers. That's because the majority
of MA beneficiaries are 65+ and covered primarily
by just a few top insurers. And as competition over this highly sought-after segment of customers heats up, Clover likely hopes the new program will drive up the lifetime value of its existing customer base. Clover has been handed a series of losses recently — a reduced Medicare star rating, unsuccessful contracts with new providers, and a legal setback to its push to expand into new states — all of which hurt its membership and revenue growth targets. Delivering primary care to the home means more patients will access preventative care, while genetic testing enables providers to prescribe more tailored drug regimens, reducing hospitalizations from adverse drug events. Legacy insurers will be keeping tabs on newer entrants like Clover Health, but it's unlikely this initiative alone is enough to differentiate Clover from other payers. Clover isn't the only MA insurer eyeing revenue growth from in-home care — Humana
and UnitedHealthcare
have also made moves to deliver care to their Medicare members' residences.
