With so many impressive businesses showcasing how they are using data to change the world, we were excited to see which one the public would choose through our online voting process. After tallying the results, we are pleased to announce data visionary Cerner is the winner of the 2017 NetApp Innovation Award!


Cerner has clearly demonstrated how using NetApp technology has made a direct and immediate impact on people’s lives by enabling health care providers to make fast, informed decisions with real-time data delivery.


Cerner: Saving lives with real-time patient data

Cerner leverages platforms and applications that empower organizations to better know, manage, and engage with patients. This IT leader has implemented multiple data-management tools, including NetApp OnCommand® Insight, to analyze and predict abnormalities before a healthcare provider is affected.


Life-saving solutions like Cerner Patient Observer, St. John Sepsis Agent, and others rely on data from Cerner’s Millennium electronic health record system, which connects patients’ health information across more than 25,000 facilities worldwide. From the exam room to the operating room, healthcare providers rely on Millennium for instantaneous access to a lifetime of data to make split-second decisions.



Selected from submissions from around the world, Cerner competed for and received the largest number of online votes for demonstrating how their use of NetApp® technology contributes to the delivery of extraordinary business outcomes.


Our customers Safelite, Solis Mammography and TechnologyOne all receive honorable mentions.


Thank you to all of our Innovation Award nominees.
