For second consecutive year, Oracle Cerner expands footprint and deepens relationships around the world

The COVID-19 pandemic brought to light the global need for more streamlined solutions to solve healthcare’s challenges – clinician burnout, inadequate data storage systems, staffing shortages and equitable patient care. With a focus on being clinically driven and fulfilling the promise of the electronic health record (EHR), Oracle Cerner remains a global leader based on EHR market share. According to the KLAS Global (Non-US) EMR Market Share 2022 report, Oracle Cerner’s customer roster consists of 2,389 acute inpatient hospitals, including 1,052 non-US clients. This is the second consecutive year of increasing total beds contracted outside of the U.S.
